Babydoll Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2023 $15-$18

If the tornado of jalapeno, basil and lime leaf lifting towards your nostrils doesn’t wow you, then the brisk, bracing, burst of lemongrass, white peach, passionfruit and lime gelato-like flavours should knock your knickerbockers off. Named after the diminutive heritage-breed sheep from the South Down hills of England’s Sussex County that Peter Yealands used to keep his vineyards gently, organically manicured, it’s a bouncy, crunchy-fresh sauvignon blanc that’ll bring a tingle to your gums.

Paired with Annabel Langbein’s Asparagus and Lemon Risotto in the NZ Herald Sat Nov 4th 2023
