We've drunk a few Nelson wines in the last few months, and it's been a bit of a revelation. Because the area is just starting to get established, the prices are definitely a point of competitiveness. This is a really good Sav for the price point - which makes it a great quaffer, but it holds it's own well with food also. It's a juicy, flavour-filled Sauvignon with tropical overtones of passionfruit. It matches well with chicken, and the acidity makes it perfect for a creamy or cheesy dish. We matched ours with a chicken and mushroom pasta in a cream sauce (I added some of the wine to the sauce for luck), and I honestly couldn't have asked for a better wine match for the food. Otherwise, the price makes it perfect for Friday work drinks or something to tote along to a party. This review is for the 2012 vintage.
