I’m not really sure I like the branding of Brent Marris’ Marisco Vineyards, but I do like the wines. This is a remarkable botrytised Sauvignon Blanc with real personality.
Marisco Vineyards A Sticky End Noble Sauvignon Blanc 2010 Marlborough, New Zealand
12% alcohol. Concentrated, richly textured, sweet and well balanced, showing notes of grape, tangerine, melon and apricot. Lovely richness here: sweet and textured, with a spicy edge to the fruity notes. Well balanced, and not overly sweet. 92/100 (£15.99 Majestic, for 37.5 cl)
