    Jane MacQuitty: New Zealand sauvignons that fail the taste test
    The bumper 2008 New Zealand sauvignon blanc harvest has helped to boost quantity but unfortunately not quality

    Judging wines blind, first thing in the morning when your palate is at its perkiest and with not only the labels but also the bottles masked so that there are no clues as to their contents, is the best test of their character. Wines without nomenclature have nowhere to hide, no grand pedigrees to sway your opinion, and faults loom large. Any bottles that pass muster at this hour of the day I have always found taste delicious in the evening with food. So I was horrified last month at the Decanter World Wine Awards, judging a whole slew of supposedly top-notch £7-£9.99 South Island New Zealand Marlborough sauvignons, to discover that most of them were evil, watery, grassy wines.

    The top drops among them did have the herbaceous, flowering currant and tropical fruit characters that have made this classic New World appellation a global crowd-pleaser ever since Cloudy Bay’s moody, misty label and zingy sauvignon blanc within pushed this wine style into the finest and rarest cult class in the mid-1980s. But there were none at this Decanter competition to which I personally wanted to award even a bronze medal and none that I would have paid £7 to taste again.

    A leading Australian oenologist afterwards told me that his take was that the detrimentally high yields the Kiwis are now squeezing out of their sauvignon blanc grapes are taking their toll. The bumper, record-breaking 2008 New Zealand sauvignon blanc harvest has helped quantity, not quality, with this grape accounting for a third of the vineyards planted but nearly two thirds of the crop.

    Any of you still keen on buying Marlborough sauvignons, when there is plenty of decent Gallic sauvignon to be had for about £6, should take care to follow specific recommendations. My hot tip £4.99 Kiwi sauvignon, which is easily worth £3 more, is the elegant, verdant, floral, gooseberry-charged 2008 Marlborough Hills Sauvignon Blanc from Majestic Wine (£4.99 a throw if you buy two or more, or £6.24 a bottle). But get cracking: there are only 3,000 cases available. The Co-op’s reply is the 2008 Explorer’s Vineyard Sauvignon, £7.49 of herby, verdant fruit. Just £1 more brings you the intense, asparagus-suitable, peapod, green bean and green tomato-spiked 2008 Tawhiri Sauvignon, £7.99, both from Marlborough. At Tesco your best Marlborough bet is the top winery Vavasour’s 2008 The Reach Sauvignon Blanc (£8.19), whose gentle, ripe, floral fruit will suit those who find sauvignon just too darned sparky for their taste.

      Jane MacQuitty is probably wasting her time. Creatures who drink New Zealand Wine couldn’t tell the difference between “New Zealand sauvignon blanc” and sweetened vinegar.

    I am a foreign history student studying in your country. I am wondering about claims made that Celtic artifacts were recovered in New Zealand, thus placing the Celtics here before the Maori people. Is this true, or is it disinformation spread by the New Zealand government to deter claims of land ownership on behalf of the Maori people?

      @Rajeev
      As long as they don’t claim Jesus was born in New Zealand, we’d just laugh the Celtic joke out.

    I have been warned by several foreigners that New Zealand wine will give you bad hangovers the next morning. I believe they add substances to them or there are pesticide residues as one of them gave me a terrible hive-like rash that lasted for almost 2 weeks.
