Honest Horse Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2021 $40 (for two bottles)

Craig and Tamara Plunkett are the faces behind Plunkett Estate. They might be a new wine enterprise in the Spring Creek subregion of Marlborough, but their family farm has a long history of being very horsey, hence the name. I often find Spring Creek sauvignon t0 have a distinct lemony character and this one has it in spades. It’s gently tropical to drink with a lick of basil and passionfruit to round out the finish. It’s a lightly-styled example that’ll please the crowds.
