Paddy Borthwick Wairarapa Sauvignon Blanc 2018

02-Aug-2018

After a difficult 2017 growing season which was cold and wet, forcing growers to pick before the weather affected the fruit any more, 2018 was a slightly easier year, where there was more warmth, but still weather events to navigate around. Growers had more choices to act, and different options led to different outcomes for the various varieties. Paddy Borthwick was happy with how his Sauvignon Blanc was handled in 2018, and he cites this wine has having the "best aromatic lift” he has had for a while, with excellent fruit sweetness. He thinks that bottling the wine early has also helped it. Here is my review. www.borthwick.co.nz
