Clark Estate Upper Awatere Sauvignon Blanc 2020, Marlborough

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 10-Dec-2020
Bright, pale straw-yellow, even colour throughout. The nose is vibrant and youthful, soft aromas of blackcurrants leading the bouquet, melded with blackcurrant leaves, lime, along with seaweed and stony minerals. Medium-light bodied, dry to taste, fresh aromas of lime, blackcurrants have a taut core, subtle blackcurrant leaves and white pepper growing more prominent lingers with crisp, stony minerals to a refreshing finish. The acidity is electric and seamless, flows along a round-edged palate with subtle phenolic textured-line with ease. This is a vibrant Sauvignon Blanc with flavours of blackcurrants and lime, savoury and mineral details with brilliant acidity. Match with mussels and shellfish over the next 2-3 years. Cool fermented to 13% alc, 1.5 g/l RS and left on lees to mature. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Nov 2020 RRP $23
