Here’s another option for you if you’re looking for a lower alcohol wine.
A big thanks to NZ Lighter Wine for this sample of The Doctors 2018 Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough, New Zealand which sits at 9.5% abv (alcohol by volume).
The Doctors are part of the New Zealand Sustainable Winegrowers group. This wine has in fact been given a stellar write up on Jancis Robinsons website and you can understand why with its full flavour, wonderful balance and naturally lower alcohol content.
We found it a pale lemon shade in the glass. Candied citrus zest, guava, tropical fruits and minerality come through on the nose. While in the mouth it’s the perfect palate cleanser, think Granny Smith apples, zesty acidity and plentiful gooseberries.
This wine was sent to me as a sample, I was under no obligation to post about it.
