A blend of grapes from the Wairau and Awatere Valleys. One of the first examples of 2015 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc I have tasted. If it is typical of the vintage then it appears to have been an excellent year. A smaller than usual crop might explain greater than usual concentration in this wine. Citrus, grapefruit, melon and a hint of passion fruit supported by juicy acidity. Good value at this price.
Pale, bright yellow. Pungent peppery lift to the aromas of lemon oil, fresh herbs and tropical fruit. Ripe nectarine, passion fruit and spice flavors convey a generous texture and enticing sweetness, but harmonious acidity gives the pliant middle palate good grip. An element of crushed herbs adds complexity. Finishes brisk and long, with an impression of salty extract. Excellent stuffing here: I like this style. (JC)
Light and crisp, with tangy lime, melon and peach flavors that are succulent and smooth, finishing juicy, with plenty of focus and intensity. Drink now.
