88pointsCottesbrook 2018 Sparkling Sauvignon Blanc (Marlborough)

Those who love the vegetal, musky aromas of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc will enjoy this sparkling version. With a nose like a New England veggie patch in late summer—tomato leaves, green beans and bell peppers—a more exotic passion fruit note lurks too, a reminder of its faraway origins. There's a touch of sweetness on the palate, but it's dry overall, with the aromas transitioning into flavors. Texture and elegance is lacking here, but Marlborough's famed style of Sauvignon Blanc is made only more bombastic with bubbles. Christina Pickard
