Giesen Uncharted Sauvignon Blanc 2020, Marlborough

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 15-Dec-2020
Bright, even, pale yellow. The nose is softly full, vibrant with penetrating aromas of limes, lychees, melded with elderflower and spicy notes of fresh-cut herbs. Medium-bodied, dry to taste, the palate is elegantly presented, crunchy lime sorbet underlined lychees, passionfruit, along with white spices and elderflower cordial. The fruit has a tropical tone, illustrated softly, adorn by elderflower and well-balanced acidity, flow with poise and grace along a fine-textured phenolic line. Subtle white spices intermix fresh-cut herbs of scallions and basil lifted the finish to linearity. This is an elegantly-soft Sauvignon Blanc with vibrant tropical fruit of limes and lychees, along with elderflower and spice details. Match with clams and whitebait fritters over the next 2-3 years. Fruit from Awatere Valley, fermented to 12.5% alc, 2.8 g/l RS, on lees for 3 to 4 months in a mix of vessels; stainless steel, 300L French barrels and 1,000L German Fuder. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Dec 2020 RRP $19.99
