Classic Marlborough Sauvignon with lifted grassy aromas, clean green fruits with lime zest and good dry length.
A few months back, I wrote about the Lidl Cimarosa Sauvignon Blanc, which they buy from Yealands, a large single estate in Marlborough. This week I received a bottle of the Tesco own-label Marlborough Sauvignon – also supplied by Yealands. I tried the two wines against each other and they are different. The Tesco version has a bit more fruit and better length, but then it sells for €2 more. If you have both supermarkets in your home town, you can try the same taste test. If not, either will appeal to fans of Sauvignon Blanc.
Available from Tesco.
