Judges Comments:

A great example of Waipara Sauvignon Blanc, from just north of Christchurch. Waiata vineyard promotes fruit driven wines and here they deliver in bucket loads. The classic flavours of cool climate Sauvignon, which New Zealand is famous for, are all here. Gooseberry, leafy herbs, green bean sprouts balanced with exquisite crunchy acidity, a real head turner.

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.
