Zoom Lake Road Sauvignon Blanc - Marlborough 2023

Lake Road Sauvignon Blanc - Marlborough 2023

$32.99

Marlborough Sauvignon is one of the most popular and distinctive wines from New Zealand, renowned for its aromatic and refreshing qualities. 

The 2023 vintage was a slightly lower yields than 2022, but a very welcome sight after the record sell-out of 2021 vintage. A dry and sunny autumn allowed the perfect opportunity for the 2023 grapes to ripen slowly and fully. The 2023 vintage has once again resulted in an exceptional, award-winning Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.

 

"Powerfully flavoursome, the wine shows rockmelon, grapefruit, kaffir lime and sweet basil aromas on the nose, leading to a succulent palate that’s lively and lingering. It’s brightly expressed with classic sauvignon flavours, offering terrific drinking."

Reviews for previous vintages:

2021 Vintage -

"Pale straw color. Aromas of fresh asparagus, marjoram, passion fruit, magnolia blossom, and marmalade with a round, lively, fruity medium body and a tingling, complex, long meyer lemon and candied ginger finish with no oak flavor. An ultra-concentrated Sauvignon Blanc with style for days." - Beverage Testing Institute

"This is intensely aromatic on the nose with kiwifruit, green rockmelon, kaffir lime and feijoa aromas. The palate is equally satisfying, displaying excellent weight and persistency, well supported by juicy acidity with a lengthy delectable finish." - Sam Kim - Wine Orbit

2019 Vintage - "Pristine and wonderfully lifted, the wine shows passionfruit, kiwifruit, nectarine and lemon peel characters on the nose, followed by a lively palate that’s juicy and zesty. It’s youthfully attractive with plenty of tasty flavours." - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
