Montana Marl Sauvignon Blanc

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (1997 Vintage) says
This famous, bargain-priced label rests its case on the flavour explosion of slow-ripened Marlborough fruit - a breathtaking style of Sauvignon Blanc which this wine, more than any other, has introduced to wine lovers in key markets around the world. Recent vintages are less lush, more pungently herbaceous than some other Marlborough labels; "this is the style we can sell locally and the UK wants," reports Montana The 1996 vintage sees the label in top form- aromatic and brisk, with incisive yet delicate, melon and green capsicum flavours, lively acidity and a lingering, satisfyingly dry finish. In its youth, the '97 looks just as good. Not quite as concentrated as the region's greatest Sauvignons, it is nevertheless intensely varietal and very flavoursome, with a lovely, deep fragrance, fresh, penetrating gooseberry/capsicum flavours and a mouth-wateringly crisp finish. A wonderful buy.
