Agricola Castellana Cuatro Rayas Sauvignon Blanc 2015 (6x 75cl)

Pale yellow colour with green glints. An intense nose with clear aromas of tropical fruits and aromatic herbs. A crisp, and very tasty wine with light acidity and structure. Pronounced flavours of grapefruit, lemon and peach. A delicious and interesting alternative to Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand.

£48.71

Alois Lageder Sauvignon Blanc 2015 (1x75cl)

Located in the German-speaking village of Magreid in the mountains of Alto Adige, Alois Lageder runs his domaine on a completely sustainable basis.

The vines, farmed biodynamically since 2004, enjoy a long and sunny growing season with warm days and cool nights that help to preserve the grapes’ natural aromas and acidity. Alois’ wines are finely chiselled, with real definition and immense charm too.

This wine is fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. It is then matured on the fine lees for 4 months.

This is an ultra-fresh, elegant Sauvignon Blanc with elderflower and lemon aromas and a clean palate with zesty citrus and just-picked gooseberry notes. This wine matches particularly well with white fish eg Cod, Pollack and Dover Sole, but is also great with summer salads and goats cheese.

This wine is suitable for both Vegetarians and Vegans.

Ata Rangi SB 2016 - August 2017 Decanter review

Refined aromas and flavours of passionfruit and lemon grass align with hints of gooseberry and grapefruit. The palate is textured with a dry finish. This Sauvignon Blanc reflects the deep gravel of the vineyards and is a textural, complex wine.

Auntsfield Single Vineyard SB 2016 - August 2017 Decanter review

A true cracker of a Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc that simply bursts with both quality and flavour. 

Marlborough is famous for its two main river valleys, the Wairau and the Awatere, from where many of its great names hail. The Auntsfield plots lie directly between the two, in what is are known as the Southern Valleys. This is a sub-region where the climate is cooler and drier. With its mix of high-mineral Greywacke rock and old, low-fertility Loess clay soils, the Southern Valleys is regarded for its riper styles of wine with more structure, texture and minerality. The Auntsfield vineyard covers 65 hectares and is planted in Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir. 

This, the Single Vineyard SB, lies some way above Auntsfield's entry level and is made only from grapes grown on the main Estate. The style is aimed towards texture, complexity and length, balancing the typical Marlborough fruit spectrum and aromatics with richness and mouth feel: this is fully realised in the 2016. Unusually for an NZSB, although the majority of the wine was cool-fermented in stainless steel (standard), this was balanced by a portion of the fruit being subject to traditional winemaking practices: handpicked, whole-bunch-pressed and fermented in seasoned oak barrels, which very materially adds texture, body and length to the wine. 

On the nose, it has powerful aromas of fresh passionfruit, ripe citrus and lime, with lesser notes of dried herbs, lemongrass, jalapeno and blackcurrant. It's no exaggeration to say that we at Exel reckon this is one of the most deliciously aromatic NZSBs we have yet encountered.

On the palate, the Auntsfield is truly powerful and yet retains its elegance: it displays intense ripe fruit flavours of passionfruit and white peach, again with citrus notes of lime and mandarin. Minerality is a term all-too-often banded about in these tasting notes, yet there is a decided wet-stone twang here. Overally, the palate has intense concentration and generous weight, balanced by an underlying minerality and tight structure. All of which is to say: "glorious".

Babich Wakefield Downs Sauvignon Blanc 2015 (6x 75cl)

Blank Canvas Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2016 (1x 75cl)

Awarded 89 points and Recommended status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their August 2017 edition review of New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs (see blue link below).

Blank Canvas SB 2016 - August 2017 Decanter review

A classic expression of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc but one which offers complexity of texture and a mineral drive reminiscent of river stones and sea spray. Blackcurrant, guava and passionfruit aromas emerge alongside subtle hints of lemongrass. On the palate, it is focused and vibrant while remaining elegantly balanced and distinctly salty.
