O:TU and Music Bay 2016 Sauvignon Blanc

27-Apr-2017
Since the international consortium that took over the Awatere Otuwhero Estate and re-established the O:TU wine brand with Jan Kux as winemaker, we have seen a number of high quality Sauvignon Blanc wines come from the 200 ha of vines near Clifford Bay. To date, the ‘estate’ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc has been joined by the single vineyard ‘Blend 102’, ‘Reserve’ and ‘Prestige’ bottlings, not all of which I have reviewed. In May last year, I reviewed the delicious ‘Barrel Reserve’ Sauvignon Blanc 2013, a sweet wine (click here to see my review). There are plans to introduce a Pinot Noir to the portfolio soon. In the meantime, a more accessible label, ‘Music Bay’ has been introduced. Here I review the 2016 Music Bay and O:TU Marlborough Sauvignon Blancs. www.otuwine.com
