It’s that time of year when everything heats up; the weather, the deadlines and the need for good value wine, so check this stellar bargain out from a big producer based in Marlborough…

2016 Toi Toi Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc RRP $12.99

This wine is very youthful, very citrusy and very good value for money with flavours of fresh herbs, zesty citrus and ripe passionfruit, pineapple and mangoes. Its high acidity matches its light body and long finish, all combining to make a wine that over delivers at this price. The grapes it was made from were grown in Omaka; a sub region on Marlborough’s vast Wairau Valley.
