2009 Tinpot Hut Sauvignon Blanc (Malborough, NZ)

If you enjoy your Malborough Sauvignon Blanc then you'll almost certainly enjoy this. Personally its generally a style of wine I struggle with, though there's no question this is a good wine.

This wine lacks the pungency of some Sav Blancs, which to my mind is a good thing, and smells of melon, passionfruit, and a touch of grassiness. On the palate there is a nice balance between ripe generous fruit and a fine line of acidity. It finishes with good length and a touch of minerality. A good wine in its style. Drink over the next couple of years.
