Hunter’s Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2020 $15-$19

Paired with Annabel Langbein’s Spring Vegetables & Tahini Soy Dressing  – CANVAS magazine NZ Herald Saturday September 25th 2021.

I’m sorry but if green beans, snow peas, asparagus, spinach, broccoli and buckets of greenery doesn’t demand a large, chilled goblet of sauvignon blanc then I don’t know what does. Hunter’s have been turning out this hero of herbaceousness since 1982. 1982! Fourty vintages on, and it’s a homegrown aristocrat heaving with punchy passionfruit, layers of lemongrass, truckloads of tomato leaf and is crammed with capsicum on the finish. It works sensationally with the nutty, salty tahini dressing too.
