Matua Valley Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2011
Founded in 1974, Matua Valley was the first New Zealand winery to produce Sauvignon Blanc, establishing them as innovators and pioneers of New Zealand viticulture. That is why I chose this wine over several others on the shelf.
The wine showed a very clear, bright with a greenish hue color that you would expect in a Sauvignon Blanc. There was a little bit of mineral aroma at first, but after one swirl aromas were full of lemon/lime and tropical fruits with a hint of melon and green apples. Nice acidity with a medium length tropical fruit finish made for a very refreshing wine.
A very nice everyday wine at a very reasonable price.Try this wine with any white fish or light summer salads or just sipping with a light cheese. Recommended
