The 2016 Kirkland Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc Ti Point Vineyard for $6.99 – A very good wine buy

2016 Kirkland Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc Ti Point Vineyard

I was very much interested in tasting this wine and comparing it with the Invivo Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc I reviewed on Monday. I was sent a sample of the Invivo; it has a list price of $15.99. How would the 2016 Kirkland Signature Sauvignon Blanc Ti Point Vineyard stack up against the Invivo?  The price for the Kirkland Marlborough is $6.99!

I was quite astonished at the quality of the Kirkland S.B. for $6.99. This is a very good wine buy. It has all the characteristics of a classic New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.  It has a load of citrus flavors and other tropical notes. It is very refreshing. While I was impressed with the Invivo Sauvignon Blanc, I am more inclined to favor the Kirkland Marlborough because it is half the cost. The only thing it lacks is a lengthy finish. The bottom line is, if you like New Zealand-style Sauvignon Blanc, you cannot go wrong with this tasty wine at this price. I rate it at 88 Points. I am amazed at how Costco can deliver such a nice wine at this price. How do they do this?

The back label is of notable interest. It has tasting notes described by the winemaker Tracy Haslam. She is a third-generation winemaker at Ti Point Vineyard.
