    New Zealanders can be straight forward folk. Winemaker David Clouston lives in a Black Cottage so when he was looking for a name for his range of Marlborough wines why obviously he chose Black Cottage. The name may be simple but the wine is a lovely highly attractive dose of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc with a burst of fruit, gooseberries, lime, tropical fruits underpinned with a fresh acidity and just a little bit of residual sugar to round it off and make it a really enjoyable glass.

    Now when you buy a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc you know what you want is a punch of screaming gooseberry backed by a citrus gang and thirst quenching acidity that is more refreshing than any power shower. This wine more than delivers that and at great value despite the strengthening New Zealand dollar.

    This is the sort of wine to have waiting for you in the fridge when you come in from a bad day in the office or having survived dragging the kids round the supermarket. Serve it ice cold and relax.

    Kevin Judd spent 25 years as the wine maker for Cloudy Bay possibly New Zealand’s most famous Sauvignon Blanc brand. It was undoubtedly the wine that launched a market for New Zealand around the world. He has now set up his own project producing wine from vines grown over greywacke soils that have his distinct signature of tremendously attractive noses backed up by clean crisp and acidity and a real mouthful of green fruit.

    He is only producing relatively small amounts and as in the early days of Cloudy Bay it is released to the UK wine trade by allocation so stocks are strictly limited. Buy early whilst we have some for it is sure to go quickly

    Snapper Rock Sauvigon Blanc

    Made from carefully selected grapes grown in the Ward Valley to the south of the Marlborough Region of New Zealands South Island.The cool climate here ensures that the wines have a racy acidity that make them particularly refreshing. This is the best vintage yet of this great value New Zealand bottled ‘Savvy’. Crisp red pepper, wild herbs and zesty acidity define this wine. Highly recommended.

    Matthew Jukes in the Daily Mail said of it

    ‘This spectacular Sauvignon Blanc is my favourite sub-tenner example of this grape in New Zealand and it has just this second arrived in the UK.’

    The Crossings is one of a number of brands owned by the Yealands Family Estates overseen by Chief Winemaker Tamra Kelly Washington. In 2013 it won the IWC Trophy for the best  Sauvignon Blanc in the World. Quite some accolade.  This latest vintage is a refined elegant kind of wine with intense aromas of limes, passionfruit and herbal notes.  In the mouth the minerality of the area shines through alongside abundent fruit flavours of melon, citrus fruits and green pepper. The wine has great length lingering delightfully on the palate and is a fine companion to dishes such as seared Tuna.

    Two Rivers ‘Convergence’ Sauvignon Blanc is the product of four vineyards situated on the banks of two rivers the Wairau and Awatare. These sites bring a complexity and minerality that is little seen elsewhere in Marlborough. If you like your Savvy’s grown up and more reminiscent of good quality Sancerre then this is the wine for you.

    The wine is made by David Clouston who is also responsible for the Black Cottage wines we list. David is highly respected and has been shortlisted for the Australasian Wine Maker of the Year. Two Rivers has been particularly successful in competition winning several Gold medals around the world.

    We recently tasted this wine at the BBC Good Food Show and it proved incredibly popular with the visitors, so much so that we ran out on two days.
