Matua Val­ley 2016 Sau­vi­gnon Blanc Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand

1/2 out of 5 $17.15 (LCBO #619452) Matua Val­ley founders Bill and Ross Spence were the first to pro­duce Sau­vi­gnon Blanc in New Zealand in 1974. The grape va­ri­ety was in­tro­duced to Marl­bor­ough and be­came a world­wide sen­sa­tion. This white wine comes from the warmer Hawke’s Bay re­gion, which tends to pro­duce a richer and riper ex­pres­sion, with ap­peal­ing tex­ture and a re­fresh­ing mix of fruit flavours, which is point­edly dif­fer­ent than the clas­sic Marl­bor­ough model.

Te Awa Win­ery 2016 Left Field Sau­vi­gnon Blanc Nel­son, New Zealand

out of 5 $18.95 (LCBO #487496) There’s a lot to like about the new Left Field re­lease, from the strik­ing la­bel de­sign to the se­ri­ously im­pres­sive rich and con­cen­trated Sau­vi­gnon Blanc in the bot­tle. This checks all of the boxes for flavour­ful Sau­vi­gnon Blanc, with bold trop­i­cal fruit, fresh cit­rus and fra­grant herbal notes in strong sup­ply. It’s tai­lor-made for pa­tio or pool­side en­joy­ment.
