The 2013 The August 1888 Sauvignon Blanc is all barrel-fermented and offers gorgeous peach, grapefruit and toast notes with hints of honeyed almonds, jasmine and elderflowers. The medium-bodied palate lends lovely texture, with great richness and length.- Wine Advocate - 91+
The 2013 The August Sauvignon Blanc has a lovely waxy, asparagus-tinged bouquet that is detailed and really expresses the grape variety. The citrusy palate is fresh, revealing hints of bell pepper and green apples on the entry and showing excellent depth on the finish. This is perfect to drink now, epitomizing everything great about New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.
