(2022) The Seifried family have more than 320 hectares of vineyards in the Nelson region of New Zealand, and make this Sauvignon Blanc exclusively for Waitrose. Nelson is not that far from Marlborough, enjoying both coastal influences and the shelter of the Richmond Ranges, and this is a tropical but still vivacious style. There is pea-pod freshness on the nose, but lots of exotic mango and lychee fruit too. The palate has a spine of lemon and lime fruit and acidity that is not at all harsh, but does cut through the fruit ripeness to finish dry and tangy. Note that the price falls to £8.49 until 12th July 2022 and that's the price to be on. Watch the video
