O:TU 'Prestige' 2012 Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 13%
Lots of juicy peach, apple and tropical fruit suggestions, vibrant and forceful; sweet herbs and a wet stone mineral layer; youthful, fresh and electric.
On the palate - just dry with an immediate layer of spicy acidity, flavors of peaches and sweet citrus fruits, a touch of pineapple and moderate herbaceous flavors; medium+ acidity, balanced and well made with a moderate finish.
What's not to like!
4 Stars

O:TU 'Blend 202' Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2012 13%
Quite a dense and rich bouquet of fruit and gentle oak spices; sweet peach and melon with hay and herb; soft vanillin and light toasted oak suggestions.
On the palate - dry with a creamy texture; peach, vanilla and lemon flavors; medium+ acidity, medium weight and a moderate+ finish; nicely balanced and well made.
A very tasty example and drinking well now and through to mid 2015.
4.5 stars
