Starborough ‘Family Estate’ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2013

The Starborough brand is hitting its stride now with James Jones happier than ever with the progress his family’s wine business is making. Recently purchasing the ‘Long Lane’ vineyard on Redwood Pass Road in the Awatere has given him much greater options in blending with the ‘Starborough Terrace’ fruit from the Seddon district of the Awatere, and that of ‘O’Dwyers Farm’ in the Rapaura district of the Wairau. James works very closely with his winemaker Dave Clouston, and they are very pleased with the 2013 Sauvignon Blanc, the wine showing the approachability the vintage has bestowed on the wines. The wine consistently becomes richer with some time in bottle, so watch this space. Here is my review of the wine.
