Elephant Hill Sauvignon Blanc 2021, Hawke’s Bay

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 07-Jul-2022
Bright, even, pale yellow with light green hues. The nose is gentle and elegant, with delicate spice overlaying citrus, guava and herb. Medium-light bodied, expressive and fresh on the palate, aromas of lime and grapefruit intermixed guava, delicate spice, herb and sweet floral linger to a rounded finish. Buoyant acidity flows with good energy, and slick spice sharpens the palate. A lightly rounded, creamy texture provides balance and a sustained, soft finish. This bright, stylish Sauvignon Blanc shows brilliant acidity and spice with a taut citrus core and seamless flow. Match with scallops and mussels over the next 3+ years. Fruit from Te Awanga, 90% fermented in tank, 10% fermented in seasoned French oak, aged 8 months on fine lees, occasional stirring. 13.5% alc. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) July 2022 RRP $22
