100% Sauvignon Blanc
Pale steel-white with green glints. There's no mistaking the variety on the nose: green fruits, spring leaves and green asparagus combine in a seamless whole, but the effect is a subtle one: more mist than cloud. For the time being, there's a little yeasty freshness, too, to this 2017 wine. All of the bright, high-focus vivacity so typical of New Zealand's Marlborough is apparent on the palate in this concentrated, unapologetic, bracing Sauvignon Blanc, pitched firmly in the vegetal spectrum rather than the sweet passionfruit typical of many of its rivals. Ample on the tongue, despite its rousing acidity, and with a long finish which suggests top-quality vineyard origins and perfectly judged ripeness. DRINK 2018-2021
