Gardo & Morris Organic Sauvignon Blanc 2021, Marlborough

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 08-Oct-2021
Bright, pale straw-yellow, lighter on the rim. The nose is softly full and distinctive, with vibrant aromas of gooseberry, lime melded with guava, a hint of spice and citrus flowers. Medium-light bodied, juicy fruit aromas of lime, gooseberry and guava have a taut, concentrated, vibrant core, draws a long line with mouthwatering acidity; followed by lime flower, white spice and salinity. The mouthfeel is smooth flowing and elegant, with fine-textured, chalky phenolics lead by good energy, lively acidity. A subtle, light dusting of white spice lifted the finish and lingered with the purity of fruit to linearity. This is an elegant Sauvignon Blanc with concentrated, classic Marlborough characters on a smooth, textural flow. Match with pan-fried sole fish and clams in herbs & butter over the next 3 years. Partially fermented in barrique, 13% alc. Organic certified. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Oct 2021 RRP $26
