    "Shows nice intensity on the long, expressive finish" ~ Wine Spectator

    The juicy frame combined with the elegant texture of the Matua Sauvignon Blanc are perfect for lighter meats: fish, seafood, chicken and turkey. This wine is also fantastic with vegetables of all sorts, particularly raw tomatoes. So, pour a chilled glass and sit down to a platter of tomato bruschetta toasts as you plan your menu. We love this Sauvignon Blanc with pasta, shrimp and peas in a light cream sauce. Its intensity is a beautiful balance to the gentle richness of the cream. Chicken is another great choice for the Matua. We would do cutlets with a lemon sauce. A simple pan fried filet of sole with some garlicky, sautéed asparagus on the side will definitely work too. What are you hungry for? After the main event, we enjoy this refined wine with a mildly mushroomy Catskill goat cheese from New York. Bon apétit wine lovers!

    Wine Spectator: "Succulent, fleshy peach and nectarine flavors are accented by Key lime, mango and ruby grapefruit notes. Shows nice intensity on the long, expressive finish. Drink now." Nov 2017

    Winery:  "Here at Matua, Sauvignon Blanc is pretty special. That's because back in 1974, we produced NZ's very first Sauvignon Blanc. 10 years later, we were making it in Marlborough. Now, Marlborough Sauvy is world famous for its unique, fresh flavours. For this wine, we've chosen grapes from across Marlborough, giving you the best crisp and tropical flavours Marlborough has to offer all in one sip!"
