    Was looking for the name Napa Valley or something similar, Susan. Glad you are now featuring a wine from New Zealand. There are fantastic wines produces in a multitude of countries all over the world. Matua Sauvignon Blanc sounds like one of them.

    • It’s so easy to feature what is near where I I live… :-). I do agree Catarina. This wine was certainly one of them exception. 🙂

  • Cheryl Therrien

    Love the blue label. Very calming effect. 🙂

    • I do too Cheryl. The wine was great and labe was appropriate for what was inside. 🙂

  • Julie

    I do love the label. That color blue is my favorite. I also enjoy a good Sauvignon Blanc.

    • Hey there Julie. Me too… :-). If you like a good Sauvignon Blanc then you will love this one. 🙂

  • Jon Jefferson

    I need a pronunciation guide. The name Matua is throwing me for a loop. Have you noticed wineries seem to grow artist colonies.

    Is this the only Sauvignon blanc coming out of New Zealand? I notice you mentioned it is the first. Or is it because they are the oldest winery?

    • It’s an interesting name for sure Jon. I have. It seems to go hand in hand.

      It was the first to produce Sauvignon Blanc but not the only one to do so now. :-).

  • Along Came Mary

    That looks great. Love how you discovered it because of the heat…& how was your play? 😉

    • Thanks Mary. The play was awesome. It was broadway play”Sugar”. 🙂

  • Jeri Walker-Bickett

    I too have good memories of Sauvingon Blanc and an outdoor theater 🙂 Crisp wine, sunny overhead, actors on stage… yep, that’s the ticket.

    • I am with you there Jeri. It was a lovely time and one I look forward to repeating for sure. 🙂

  • Debra Yearwood

    Sauvignon Blanc is a summer favourite of mine, but I have never tried anything from the Matua winery, I look forward to the opportunity.

    • You will enjoy this one for sure Debra. Have fun with it. 🙂

  • Sav blanc is one of my favourites and I have had this wine which was good. I think you can’t go too wrong with any Sav Blanc form New Zealand. There are now so many brands on the market and available in Australia that you never have to pay a high price. Lucky us 🙂

    • I agree Susan. How lucky for you. New Zealand wines are just now coming into our market. I can’t wait to try more. 🙂

    It’s hard to go wrong with a NZ Sauvignon Blanc. This one sounds exceptional b/c of the passionfruit finish. I’m sure I would LOVE that!

    • I agree on all accounts Doreen. This is a really nice wine and one I will get again for sure. 🙂

  • Lorraine Marie Reguly

    I thought I’d drop you a line and let you know that I have at least heard of this wine. I think I may have even tried it once, years ago!

    • Hi Lorraine, That is cool. This is new wine for me. I have just stated to explore the New Zealand wines varietals. 🙂

  • Pat Ruppel

    Looks like it’s time to pop the cork, Susan!

    You make Matua Sauvignon Blanc sound so good. Now if only drinking it would transport me to New Zealand… that would amazing. I’d love to visit there someday

    • I would too Krystle. It is on my bucket list. The wine is really good, but alas it want do that… LOL.

  • Rebecca Thompson

    I know this one will be available in Australia, so I will be hitting this one in the near future as Spring comes in to bloom 🙂

  • Jacqueline Gum

    Sounds refreshing and delightful. It’s hot here in South Carolina, so I may have to trot over to total wine and get myself a bottle of Matua Sauvignon Blanc

  • Sauvignon Blanc is what to drink when it’s summer. Never had this one. Am partial to South African varieties.

  • Debra Yearwood

    Matua is a great summer wine, one of my regulars. 🙂
