We drank Montana Sauvignon Blanc 2006 Marlborough with friends this weekend. It was a fun evening – fabulous seafood pasta and fresh tuna which if I was an American I’d feel the need to tell you was sushi grade.
The wine matched the evening perfectly, it was bright, fresh and fruity, without any pretensions. The flavours just leapt out of the glass with zippy herbs and grassy goodness inviting you in. The acidity was crisp, and the mix of gooseberries and passionfruit with limes is just heavenly.
This is the basic Montana Sauvignon Blanc, but it tastes more like a premium edition. It’s 12.5% alcohol, but worryingly gluggable, in a Pringles kinda way.
Oddbins and Waitrose stock it for around £6-£6.50, and you can track it down on the high street without too much searching.
