18 Sauvignon Blanc
Sauvignon Blanc has been a flagship wine for Hunter’s since the very beginning in 1979. This is the variety that introduced Hunter’s and New Zealand wine to the world back in 1986 at the Sunday Times Wine Festival in London.
Classically Marlborough, our 2018 Sauvignon Blanc immediately shows passionfruit and ripe tropical fruit aromas with a touch of herbaceous capsicum. It has a very refreshing multi-layered palate of citrus and tropical fruits. These flavours and aromas leave a fresh lingering finish on the palate making it a full satisfying wine with balanced acidity.

91 Points - Cameron Douglas, The Shout.
"Attractive bouquet of SB with a sweet floral and ripe yellow stone fruit, sweet lemon and whispers of tropical fruits. More herbaceous on the palate with plenty of acidity and freshness. Flavours of peach, Meyer lemon, grapefruit and apple then emerge. Balanced and well made. Drink now and through 2020."
Very Good to Excellent - Mark Henderson, Otago Daily Times.
"Classically Marlborough: nose of cut grass, passionfruit, gooseberry and sweat. Pungent and bold. A little more subtle on the palate at first, hints of fruit sherbet and asparagus with a sweet and sour tangy crispness. This opens up nicely with aeration, coming on strongly on the home straight as the flavours and length build. Just what you’d expect from a sav."
