Ohau River Sauvignon Blanc Manakau 2012 – $
This wine was a steal down my local Pak ‘N Save supermarket. They were giving it away at $7.99.
I like this producer. I have bought a few wines from them these past few years, and I usually pay $15-20 more.
This is an older Savvy. A ‘tweenie’ in Sav Blanc years…
Pale Gold. 13.5% alc.
Surprisingly sweet nose. Bright acidity. Notes of coriander leaf and celery stalk. A less aggressive style than you would see out of Marlborough. But that could be the bottle age.
Dominant grapefruit flavours on front palate. Freshness is softened a little by the age. Nice Granny Smith apple quality finish to the wine.
Pleasant quaffage, and a bargain.
