27 Seconds Encore Sauvignon Blanc 2020, North Canterbury

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 12-Apr-2021
Bright, pale straw-yellow, even colour throughout. The nose is softly full and pretty, lifted aromas of elderflower melded with ripe stonefruit, pineapple, crunchy lime and a gooseberry underlay. Medium-bodied, dry to taste, the palate is bright with lush and soft acidity, aromas of stonefruit, pineapple and lime have an elegant core, elderflower adorns. The mouthfeel is clean and crisp, flow along a chalky mineral line with salinity; acidity is bright yet soft, brings out subtle spices on the finish, lends a lengthy fresh-limey finish. This is a crisp Sauvignon Blanc with flavours of tropical fruit; elderflower flows on a saline, mineral drive. Match this with sole fish and crabcakes over the next 3 years. 13% alc. 18+/20 (91 pts) Apr 2021 RRP $18
