Eva Pemper Sauvignon Blanc 2020, Marlborough

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 17-Sep-2021
Bright, pale straw-yellow, even colour throughout. The nose is softly full, elegantly layered aromas unfolding, passionfruit, guava melded with sweet floral. Medium-bodied, soft nuances of guava, passionfruit entwined with citrus, elderflowers and saline. The palate is ethereally smooth-flowing and soft, carries finely chalky minerals across the palate; accompanied by integrated acidity, flows with good energy to a supple, lightly-fragranced finish. This is a textural Sauvignon Blanc showing attractive minerals and acidity, underlying supporting features of floral and tropical fruit. Match with clams in seaweed butter and steamed fish over the next 2-3 years. Machines harvested and destemmed, fermented in stainless steel with selected yeast strains to 12.5% alc. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Sept 2021 RRP $24.90
