Judges Comments:

Here’s a Sauvignon showing the very ripe flavours of concentrated citrus, lemongrass and Kafir lime, balanced with crisp acidity and a long textural finish. Sauvignon is a marvellous wine to match with green vegetables like courgettes, fresh peas, artichokes and fresh asparagus. These are all fragrant fresh green vegetables that create the most wonderful risottos.

Pairing Recommendation:

The refreshing acidity is a terrific complement to Vietnamese and Thai, antipasti and pre dinner nibbles, Warm beet salad, goats cheese tart, chips and dips and pizza or pasta. New Zealand green lipped mussels are a spectacular pairing, as are green vegetables, like courgettes, fresh peas and of course new season’s asparagus, which are also great for a picnic or light lunch. Pair with cheeses like mozzarella, feta and goats cheese.
