Stanley Estate’s Noble Harvest Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2014stanley estate noble sauvignon 375ml  $27 ★★★★

This is another rather rare style of dessert wine because you don’t often see sauvignon blanc, Marlborough’s signature grape, offered up in such a sweet, silky, luxurious manner.  Steve Pellet and Bridget Ennals named their wines after their beloved Landrover ‘Stanley’, who safely carried them from Bath, UK, to South Africa and then on to New Zealand.  This ultra-tangy, treat that oozes passionfruit and lemon curd, honeysuckle and toffee notes – is firmly a new favourite for me.
