Boatshed Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2022

Boatshed Bay Sauvignon BlancWell, it kind of worked out well being hacked.  I have started to find wines again that I might have passed on.  The Boatshed Bay Sauvignon Blanc is one of those wines.

Yes of course it’s a New Zealand Marlborough region wine.  When it comes to Sauvignon Blanc it’s a no-brainer.  You are assured of getting a decent white wine from anywhere in that region.  Just to add to that statement in 1986 it gained the title of Best Sauvignon in the World.

This was a Saturday afternoon barbecue with friends. So it was a nice safe pick.  Very typical fruity flavors throughout.  It went down over a few courses of typical barbecue meats and salads with crusty white bread.

I liked the wine in general but as a favorite Sauvignon Blanc, it’s still the South Island sauv blanc that wins.  Would I try it again, sure?  Would I go out of the way to drink it again, not really.

I am now back to tasting wines for the blog.  I expect to move through the local bottle shops’ wine selection.

About the Winery

The actual Boatshed Bay winery was only established in 1996 by Kim and Jeanette Goldwater.  Then got gobbled up by Foley Family Wines, which owns 24 Wineries across 4 Continents.
