An absolutely jaw-dropping cancelled export deal has just landed in our laps! This is an absolute beauty! It looks and tastes the part of a premium Sauvy, priced like an every night quaffer on this incredible clearance deal.
You’re looking at a RESERVE label Marlborough SauvyB from the 2018 vintage, made exclusively for thirsty Marlborough Sauvy drinkers in the United States, produced by a well known, award winning NZ winery.
In exchange for a rock bottom rate (and for taking every last box they had!) we’ve promised to keep our lips sealed on the producer’s true identity. Under a different label here in NZ this wine sits under the winery’s “Reserve” label and sells for $20 on special right now, up to $25 at full price. At $10.99 you do the sums – you’re pocketing some decent savings right here!
They looked like they’d seen a ghost when one of their US buyers left them high and dry on a deal, leaving their warehouse here in NZ scarily over stocked and little choice but to flog the living daylights out of it to move it along.
Under its domestic label here in Aotearoa it’s won a heap of top awards, as you’d expect from a Reserve quality Sauvy sitting in the $20-25 mark. That includes 5 Stars (Sam Kim), 4 1/2 Stars & Top 10 rated NZ Sauvys (Cuisine magazine), 4 Stars (Raymond Chan) and 4 Stars (Michael Cooper MW). Cooper called it “a classy young wine, with lots of youthful impact…showing a distinct touch of complexity.”
A classic Marlborough Sauv at first sip – a mouth-watering style full of tropical fruit flavours and fresh acidity. As soon as we tried this we simply had to grab every last box. Do not muck about – this is a belter!
Please note: Accolades mentioned for this wine are awarded to the identical wine under its domestic label selling here in NZ.
