tiki-single-vineyard-sav-blanc-2016Tiki Single Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2016, Marlborough, NZD $22.99

Quite a concentrated sauvignon blanc, with strong passionfruit supported by more subtle guava, tree fruit and red capsicum flavours. The wine has some pleasing sweet-and-sour tension. A classic Marlborough style with truly punchy fruit flavour.
