Domain Road Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2023, Central Otago

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 15-Feb-2024
Bright, even, pale yellow. The nose is softly full and poised, with aromas of orchard fruit, gooseberry, elderflower and creamy lees elements. Medium-light bodied, aromas of apple and pear melded with gooseberry, unfolding elderflower, a light dusting of white spice and subtle creaminess. The mouthfeel is delicate with fine-texture phenolics; the fruit is elegantly restrained, layered with spice and floral details, flows along with a soft and fine acid line to a moreish finish. Match with goat's cheese tart and steamed clams over the next 3+ years. Handpicked, whole bunch pressed, fermented in stainless steel (43%) and French oak barriques (57%) to 13.8% alc, weekly lees stirred. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Feb 2023 RRP $27
