eRobertParker.com #209. Oct 2013. Reviewer : Lisa Perrotti-Brown. The 2013 Reserve Wairau Valley Sauvignon Blanc is intensely scented of fresh grapefruit, gooseberries and mown grass with a touch of struck match. Medium-bodied, it offers tons of citrus and herbal flavors in the mouth marked by a racy acid line and a long finish with the vegetal side coming through. Drink it now to 2016.
