Very "barn yardy", lots of grass and hay...somewhat pungent. I love this wine. It's not for beginners or anyone that does not like the above atributes. For my money...this is the best inexpensive white in San Francisco. "VIVA' LA New Zealand!" Spy valley is also VERY GOOD.
I thought it was a fantastic very fruity, summer patio type, refreshing Sav Blanc
Sorry, I forgot to rate this wine...for value ($15 USD) and taste, I have to rate this...GREAT VALUE.
Crisp. Gooseberry, apple. Dry, moderate mouth feel. Long candy finish.
External Reviews for Starborough Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough
The quality here has been consistent over the past few vintages, offering solid value in an easy-drinking style. It leads with herbal aromas, but the flavors are less green, more melon and fig carried by a sense of creamy lushness.
I tasted it with a wide range of foods--Shrimp with Hot Garlic Sauce, crisp apple slices with butterkase and smoked ham, a big spoonful of Moose Tracks ice cream--- and was not disappointed once.
Smooth and juicy, showing fragrant lemongrass, thyme and fresh grass notes that mingle nicely with bright lemon-lime and tart green apple flavors. There's a nice balance of power and elegance. Drink now.
Tart, and lively, with pear and lime flavors that echo nicely on the open-textured finish. Drink now.
