Lidl Cimarosa Sauvignon Blanc 2014, Marlborough, New Zealand
12.5% €8.79 per bottle
Visiting the massive (1,000 hectare) Yealands estate in Marlborough a few weeks back, I spied a bottle of this wine in the tasting room. Peter Yealands smiled and said, yes we do supply a Sauvignon to Lidl. It is not the same cuvée as the Peter Yealands, which sells for around €15, but those on a limited budget who enjoy Marlborough Sauvignon should stock up on this wine. Fresh and light with good lifted herby aromas, light fresh green fruits and classic Marlborough citrus acidity. Certainly the best white wine in the Cimarosa range from Lidl.
