Walnut Block Wines Collectables 2009 Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough

wine 030312 001The postage stamp design on the Walnut Block Wines Sauvignon Block is quite eye-catching, but this New Zealand wine doesn’t make a special delivery.

It’s designation as part of the “Collectables” series had us hoping for just a little bit more than what we found in the glass. The citrus and melon flavor notes along with the herbaceousness associated with Sauvignon Blanc add up to a perfectly satisfactory wine. Those who want something extraordinary, however, won’t find it here.

This wine retails for about $15, but can be found on sale for less.
