PREMIUM 5* MARLBOROUGH SAUV FOR UNDER $20
FIVE STARS 95/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
FIVE STARS | Michael Cooper
With founder David Herd planting his first grapes in 1873, Marlborough producer Auntsfield boasts an impressive pedigree. Now under the careful guardianship of the Cowley family, with sons Ben and Luc at the helm in the vineyard and winery, this premium producer crafts Marlborough classics. With succulent fruit flavours and a textural mouthfeel balanced by zippy acidity, this is a truly delicious and stylish glass of sauv whose quality well belies its humble sub $20 asking price.
A must-buy for any premium sauv aficionado.
Sam Kim, Wine Orbit writes "Exhibiting outstanding fruit purity and vibrancy, the wine shows Granny Smith apple, kiwifruit, jalapeno and white floral aromas on the nose. The concentrated palate displays brilliant focus and drive, leading to a persistent mouth-watering finish. The wine offers terrific precision and varietal expression with textured mouthfeel, making it stylish and engaging. At its best: now to 2030."
