Black Barn Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc 2020, Hawke’s Bay

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 25-Jun-2021
Bright, even, pale yellow. The nose is full of intense aromas of tropical guava, gooseberries, lime melded with lovage, chive and fresh-cut grass. Medium-bodied, good intensity aromas of lime, gooseberries and guava have a good core, unfolding spicy herbs of chive, lovage and herbaceous grassiness. There's a creaminess on the palate that provides balance to the mouthwatering acidity, flow smoothly with chalky, fine-textured phenolic to a refreshing finish. This is a pleasing, herbaceous Sauvignon Blanc with ripe fruit on a fine-textured palate. Match with pork croquettes and crumbed fish over the next 3 years. The fruit was lightly crushed, settled for 24 hours, inoculated with aromatic yeast strain with a portion fermented in old French oak. 13.5% alc. 18/20 pts (90 pts) June 2021 RRP $25
