The 2018 Private Bin Sauvignon Blanc showcases everything fresh and vibrant about Marlborough. Initially, the classic Awatere Valley aromas jump out of the glass, such as lemongrass, jalapeño peppers and fresh herbs. The cool climate in the Awatere Valley is influenced by Mt Tapuae-o-uenuku and the cool alpine winds and fresh sea breezes protect the natural acidity in this wine. In contrast, the Wairau Valley has warmer summer months, with dry nor-westerly winds influencing vineyards to produce a pungent Sauvignon Blanc with ripe citrus and tropical fruit flavors. Perfect aperitif wine, serve chilled on warm summer days. Fresh herbal flavours match well with most salads, whereas the riper tropical flavors match well with any fish recipes.

Wine AdvocateThe 2018 Private Bin Sauvignon Blanc shows plenty of ripeness in its aromas of guava and nectarine. It's light to medium-bodied on the palate, narrowing down to pineapple and grapefruit flavors that fade rapidly on the finish. It's a solid effort for the vintage.

Wine EnthusiastOne of New Zealand's best known labels delivers a fruit bowl of a wine, bursting with peach, pineapple and guava, with a flicker of nondescript green-vegetal notes at the rear-a crisp slippery light weight summer sipper.
