Matua Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2019

There's a thread on YourSay, the Vinous forum, discussing everyday Sauvignon Blancs. Matua was mentioned by a collector I admire as being pretty good. My mother-in-law is an enthusiastic consumer of these wines and is fully stocked, so I thought I'd give it a whirl... The 2019 Matua is a very pale green. Plenty of acidity, nice grassy notes, a touch of zest. Rather short but not insipid. Perfectly reasonable plonk to start an evening.

Taste is fine, but it has a BO smell that is turning me off. Ours was 2019.

Classic example of NZ Sauvignon Blanc with grapefruit, gooseberries and green bell pepper. Nice acidity on a value wine.

Sharp, crisp, refreshing, with floral and honey (?) notes. Loved by everyone. Compared with a bordeaux sauvignon blanc, preferred this Malborough on much better. Bought at $27 from Cold Storage on discount. Served with asparagus risotto. Girls night in.

Had this wine many times over the years and for less than $10 it’s a pretty good deal. I got cat pee right away followed by grassy herbaceous notes, zippy & nervy, it also showed tart green citrus and once it warmed up the tropical fruit emerged. Thin light bodied - brief thirst quenching finish.
