Omaka Springs Sauvignon Blanc 2008
Our Sauvignon Blanc shows the best that Marlborough has to offer. This wine displays a burst of tropical fruits - guava, passionfruit, and a hint of ripe melon, complimented by a vibrant acidity, herbaceous tomato stalk notes and nuances of gree capsicum. The careful addition of 6.2% Semillon lends good structure and adds to the texture and length.
Omaka Springs Sauvignon Blanc, is most likely the best value in the entire Bay Area today in Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. This is particularly the case for those palates (like mine) who yearn for elegance and restraint in their New Zealand Savvys. One would be hard pressed to find a white from anywhere that delivers as much in terms of quality and flexibility on the dinner table as this wine" (Haden, Rod, The Wine Shelf).
