Invivo 2010 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc
I can hear the wine snobs scoffing from here. Marlborough sauvignon blanc may be a little passé in trendy circles, but there are still an awful lot of people out there who love it - and this is one of the best releases from 2010, a delightfully perky wine full of youthful exuberance. More restrained and elegant than many of its counterparts, this has tropical/floral aromas and is is driven by subtle citrus and gooseberries on the palate. Nicely textured with mere hints of herbaceousness, this is a delightful wine for enjoying well-chilled over summer. $18.
