2011 The Seeker Sauvignon Blanc – Review

By Duane Pemberton
Winery website: http://theseekerwines.com

The Seeker Wine project is one that was started by KoBrand Corporation in New York City with the aim of finding excellent wine sources from all over the world that do a good job of representing each variety in an affordable fashion. This bottle of Sauvignon Blanc, sourced from New Zealand, is no exception to that mission.

Technical Data: 

  • Varietal: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
  • Vineyard sites: Marlborough and Martinborough
  • Alcohol: 12.7%
  • Acidity: 7.6 g/l
  • pH: 3.06 Aging: 2 months in tank on light lees
  • Price: $15

Nose: Really nice combination of hay, lemon, lime, gooseberry, peaches and kiwi.

Taste: A very well balanced Sauvignon Blanc that keeps that classic “grass” action which I appreciate big time from this varietal but also layers some good citrus and tropical flavors as well. Good acids, body and fruit make it an easy pick for the money.

W.E.P. Rating: 100%
