Domain Road Sauvignon Blanc 2021, Central Otago

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 29-Nov-2021
Bright, even, pale straw-yellow colour with a light green hue. The nose is expressive with intense aromas of pineapple, passionfruit, citrus, interweave citrus blossom, wild fennel and mustard seeds. Medium-light bodied, dry to taste, electric acidity flows with great energy, carrying lime and zest, pineapple, underlying wild fennel, mustard seeds and citrus blossom. A creamy mouthfeel tames the edge of acid tension; spice and light phenolics left a juicy, savoury and moreish finish. This is a vibrant Sauvignon Blanc with intense tropical fruit and spice, creamy lees complexity, and an electric acid line. Match with oysters and battered fish over the next 3 years. Handpicked, whole bunch pressed, inoculated fermentation in 35% stainless steel, 65% in French oak barriques (one new barrel), lees stirred. 13.5% alc, 4.2 g/l RS. 18+/20 pts (91 pts) Nov 2021 RRP $24
