DRINK OF THE WEEK
12th November 2018
Makaraka Sauvignon BLanc
Drinker Rating 90
Overwhelmingly, among accomplished wine drinkers in the UK, sauvignon blanc is the favoured white grape. Particulalry if it comes from New Zealand.The Kiwi's have been making this stuff in their own style for decades and it's really caught on.
Possibly it's a fovourite because, unlike many European whites, it actually tastes of something, usually it's bursting with tropical flavours, gooseberry, lychee, mango and the like, rather that the light dry neutral whites of say Italy.
This wine is a cracker at the price as New Zealand wines are generally on the steep side. Dry, full and zesty - it's just a pity that their rugby team does so well over here too!
