NZ Sauv Blanc is dry and crisp but it has so many flavors that just kind of explode in your mouth it almost seems like it might be off dry but its not. I picked up several bottles of Nobilo which is pretty much available in most chain grocery stores. Its a nice example at a decent price.

I second Mike's recommendation. Around $11 here and very nice for that price. My sister-in-law calls it the 'devil wine'. It's evil and sneaks up on you.

I got mine for ~$7 a bottle on sale back at Xmas. Top up wine for my Eclipse NZ SB!

The pH of my Eclipse Kit ended up at a whopping 3.43 after degassing and clearing. The Nobilo was 3.28 in comparison. The Eclipse had a nice aroma but not much zing on the palette. I added 20gm Tartaric and that dropped the pH down to 3.28.

This thing zings nicely now and taste like you could drink it right now and its only ~2.5 weeks old. Gotta love it.

Email sent to them. Will see what they comeback with. I specifically asked about the Kenridge Showcase line and bolded it!

So just got a quick reply back from Vineco………


Hello,

If you visit our Vineco website, there is a field where you can populate your address and it will bring up all retailers near you.

Thank you
Julie



There are NO retailers in my state for any Vineco products. So using their website in the manner she suggested returns ZERO retailers…….

GRRRRRRRR…….. Needless to say I had to send her more details and yet another polite request for a listing of retailers in the US that sell the Kenridge Showcase line.

Had to explain to her that Water 2 WIne is a BOP (Brew on Premise) franchise and that they are not a traditional retailer that will ship something out to you….

Sometimes these wine manufacturers don't even know that some of the retailers posted on their web site do not even carry their line.

BTW - you said you just made the Eclipse New Zealand Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc recently. Wondering how different, better/equal/etc. compared to the other kit manufacturers specific to this varietal and origin (NZ).

I assume you have tried the Kenridge Showcase in the past, is it that good compared to the Eclipse New Zealand Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc?
