Bulk Buy rated Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc at a fabulous Costco price, the Wairau River Sauvignon Blanc.
Sample submitted for review. The Wairau River Sauvignon Blanc has an SRP of $21 and an average wine-searcher price of $15 but we've spotted it at Costco for just $10.99. It is imported by Terlato Wines International.
Our family has been planting vines along the Wairau River since 1978, shaping our wines from the beginning. The Estate wines are a reflection of our philosophy; making exceptional food and wine an everyday experience.
Intense lifted notes of ripe tropical fruits and citrus on the nose. Refined and elegant, displaying a finely textured palate with flavours of guava and stone fruit. Wonderfully expressive with a fresh, dry finish.
The 2021 Wairau River Sauvignon Blanc opens with harmonious and inviting aromas of citrus and tropical fruit along with just a bit of a grassy note. It's a rather beautiful start and is instantly recognizable as New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.
The wine tastes fresh, crisp and delicious. Full of rich, flavorful fruit similar to the nose it also features good acidity and a pleasing mouthfeel.
It ends dry and very, very long with lots of lingering juicy fruit on the lip-smacking finish. This is great example of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. I love it, especially at the Costco price.
