    2022 BOB Short for Kate Sauvignon Blanc, Ben Glover Family Wines

    £1395 22% saving

    This stunning Sauvignon blanc is made by one of the top New Zealand’s top wine makers, Ben Glover and is an homage to his late sister, Kate.

    It is a zesty Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc offers the best of what the region has to offer. There are lovely aromas of white peach, melon and tropical fruits. Wonderful tastes of tropical passion fruit, guava and mandarin on the palate as well as a mouth-watering succulence and a delightful persistence.

    As Jancis Robinson says: “a more complex Marlborough Sauvignon than most, with notes of greenery. A superior version of a well-loved style of wine.”

    Nicknamed ‘Bob’ by her family (some of you may recognize the Blackadder reference), Bob Short for Kate is a tribute to Kate Glover, an amazing young drama teacher and Ben’s sister, who passed away in 2018. Ben explains that he has looked to produce a wine that characterises the honesty, purity and confidence of Kate. These are organic, Marlborough wines, reliant on selected blocks from the family’s vines and exceptional fruit selection. Not to mention the skill of one of the region’s most well-regarded winemakers.

This wine is only made in vintages when the season facilitates the extra hanging time required for the growth of botrytis on the grapes.
