This is a wine about which I can tell you little. The website listed on the label ( doesn't work, a google search reveals nothing and the Handfords website is totally lacking in details too. Still its a rather scrummy wine worthy of trying.

Wine Tasting Note: Springbank Sauvignon Blanc, 2004, Marlborough, New Zealand.
Available from Handfords £6.99.
Punchy in a typical green-pepper, Marlborough style. Medium bodied, plenty of grass and passionfruit mingled in with that grassy/greenness. The acidity is not too rasping; overall the wine is fresh, crisp and tangy. Good length. Pity about the lack of info and the uninspiring label. Alcohol 12.5%.
Scribblings Rating - 92/100
