New Zealand’s best Sauvignon Blanc
“It’s a vintage for the gin and tonic lover,” said Cuisine wine panellist Jack Glover about the 2015 Sauvignon Blancs. These new release wines certainly share freshness, vigour and flavours with the cocktail on which the sun never sets. No one on the panel picked up any juniper notes, but coriander, dill, fennel, citrus peel – all botanicals used in gin – were bountiful. The 2015s also had plenty of concentration and energy, with ripe acids driving depth and focus.
