Elephant Hill Sauvignon Blanc 2018, Hawke’s Bay

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 06-May-2021
Bright, pale yellow with a green hue, even colour throughout. The nose is fresh and herbaceous, softly penetrating an amalgam of citrus, fresh-cut grass, hints of dried herb and dried wildflower. Medium-bodied, beautifully fine-textured phenolic flows on an energic acid line with aromas of green apple, citrus and zest, interweave dried wildflower, hay and herbs with good depth. A touch of flinty mineral carries to linearity. The wine possesses an ethereal texture from zesty phenolics as well as a lees-aged creaminess. Salivating acidity leads to food suggestion of kingfish crudo and oysters, enjoy over the next 3-5 years. Fruit sourced from Te Awanga vineyard, whole bunch pressed and fermented with indigenous yeast in stainless steel tank to 12.6% alc, aged on fine lees for 4 months. 18+/20 pts (91 pts) May 2021 RRP $22
