  • Wed 16 Oct 2019

NOW IN STOCK! New 2019 Vintage and New Look label Misty Cove Sauvignon Blanc.

Anthony Byrne Fine Wines (the exclusive distributor for the UK) have just received the new 2019 vintage Misty Cove Sauvignon Blanc. Trade customers will transition over in the next few months, and where we print your wine lists, we will deliver updated pages with the correct vintage.

This new vintage has been awarded 93 points by Wine Orbit New Zealand (the independent wine reviewer in New Zealand).

With the new vintage comes a fresh new look label which we think is perfect for the up and coming festive season. White with gold foil lettering is very pleasing on the eye and very elegant. If you love a fresh, fruity and crisp New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc then look no further as this is the one for you. We love it and are sure you will too.
