Wine Review: 90+ Cellars Lot 2 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2016

May is 90+ Cellars Month on!

90+ Cellars Lot 2 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

To learn about how 90+ Cellars finds their wine and everything else you want to know about the Boston based company, read A Brief History of 90+ Cellars!

One of 90+ Cellars' top selling items is their Lot 2 Sauvignon Blanc out of Marlborough, New Zealand. There are rumors that it's a certain popular Sauvignon Blanc with a green label whom will remain unspoken, but I can tell you that it's not and I'm not sure why that rumor exists. The Lot 2 is much better than that rumored source label. Also, if you bought this wine under the source label it would cost you $16, while under 90+ Cellars it'll cost you $12.

NOTE: In advance of moving to a new house and the arrival of a new baby, the reviews for March, April and May were all written in February and may be much quicker and to the point than you expect from this blog. Foolishness will return this summer.

The color of the wine is pale yellow with a silvery shine. On the nose there's Tic-Tac shell, grapefruit, green pepper, lemon peel and celery. It's firmly structured within its medium body, yet still crispy with a sharp acidity. On the palate there's flavors of lime, grapefruit and pear. With the finish you're left with the saliva in your mouth stripped away as if it were a highly tannic red, and there's flavors of lime and pear.

It's just so very good and so very New Zealand. In fact, it does not get much better for New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc at $12. I insist that you give it a try.

Price: $12
Rating: 5/5 = Highly Recommended (what does that mean?)
