Starborough ‘Family Estate’ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2012 Revisited

13-Oct-2012
I reviewed this wine in the middle of July this year, just before it was about to be released onto the market. The trouble with tasting wines recently bottled is that they can be restrained and dumb, or quite disjointed. I tasted the wine in the company of a regular wine show judge, independently of course, and I came up with my 18.0+/20 () rating, which was very much the same score as my guest wine judge. Since then, this wine has gone on to win two gold medals, one at the Spiegelau International Wine Competition and the other at the N.Z. International Wine Show, both shows judged in September. It would be churlish if I didn't look at this wine again. www.starborough.co.nz
