FIVE STARS 94/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
92 POINTS | Cameron Douglas MS
We were super impressed with this sauv when it passed our desks at Advintage HQ. Lush and layered, this Five Star sauvignon offers classic Marlborough flavours of tropical fruits, pink grapefuit and fresh green herbs. It's wonderfully flavoursome and juicy on the palate, yet with a lively acidity that keeps things crisp and refreshing. With a touch of salinity and wet stone minerality, this delectable sauv displays the complexity usually seen in wines in the $20 plus category.
This is a sure-fire winner at just $14.99 on case buys - shuck the oysters and put a bottle in the ice bucket immediately.
Sam Kim, Wine Orbit writes "Intensely aromatic and enticing, the bouquet shows green rockmelon, kiwifruit, apple and lemon zest notes, leading to a wonderfully flavoursome palate delivering terrific fruit power and persistency. Lively and delectably appealing."
Cameron Douglas MS writes "Bright, fresh, lifted bouquet, classic aromas of fresh tropical fruits and pink grapefruit, apple and fresh green herbs. Delicious on the palate with flavours that mirror the bouquet, crisp and refreshing with salivating acidity, a touch of salinity, fresh green herbs and a wet stone mineral finish."
