really enjoyed this wine - nice fruit and good acidity
Tastes of strawberries, apricots, ripe fruit. Very smooth and delicious.
Beautifully floral bouquet filled with pineapple and lime. Smooth finish, might have to make this my go-to SB this summer!
Floral nose. Crisp and slightly citrus.
Lots of lime and citrus flavors. Would pair really nice with grilled chicken on a hot summer day.
External Reviews for Starborough Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough
Pleasantly soft and round, this is a good value Sauvignon Blanc for drinking over the next few months. Hints of stone fruit offset herbal notes reminiscent of crushed tomato leaf.
Tart, and lively, with pear and lime flavors that echo nicely on the open-textured finish. Drink now.
WS 90pts. - According to the Wine Spectator: Smooth and juicy, with fragrant lemongrass, thyme and fresh, grassy notes that mingle nicely with bright lemon-lime and tart green apple flavors. There's a nice balance of power and elegance. Drink now. Tasting Notes - The 2009 Starborough Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc s crisp, approachable style is characterized by layers of citrus and ripe tropical fruit with some herbal notes. The wine shows flavors of passion fruit, guava and kiwi over a citrus background.
The grapes were destemmed, but not crushed, and lightly pressed in order to avoid over extraction of bitter tannins from the skins. The must was then fermented in upright stainless steel tanks at cool temperatures for 30 days. The wine was filtered prior to bottling.
