Classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc at a great Trader Joe's price, the Tuatea Sauvignon Blanc.
This wine is available for $6.99 exclusively at Trader Joe's. It is imported by WX Imports.
In New Zealand's native Maori language, Tuatea means "crest of the wave". This distinctly Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc offers a pleasant blend of zesty citrus, guava and understated lemongrass. A balanced acidity sets the stage for a persistent, clean finish.
Bottled by Winepress Vintners
The 2020 Tuatea Sauvignon Blanc opens with a pleasing aroma of grassy grapefruit and citrus notes with touches of tropical fruits.
Taking a sip reveals a tasty, classic Sauvignon Blanc. I drank this back-to-back with the Brancott Estate and it just doesn't have quite the same richness and depth but this is still quite a good value. Light bodied, with a smooth texture, the wine features similar flavors to the nose.
It finishes crisp and dry with lots of lip-smacking flavors left lingering on the lips.
