Mansion House Bay Sauvignon Blanc
Mansion House Bay wines are named after the first home of New Zealand’s first Governor General, Sir George Grey, who lived in a large mansion house on Kawau Island in the Hauraki Gulf from 1862 to 1888. It's an idyllic, utopian setting, even today with its peacocks still strutting across the palm fringed lawn, but it's a long way from the source of the grapes in these wines, which come from Marlborough.
This is a light and dry Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand's biggest wine region and its flavours are fresh, crisp and taste of green apple and pear with a lingering finish. This is very good value for money.
