Hunter’s Sauvignon Blanc 2020, Marlborough

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 03-Feb-2021
Bright, pale lemon-yellow, even colour throughout. The nose is vibrant and full; the glass is packed with nuances of passionfruit, gooseberries, fresh-cut grass, along with pineapple and sage scent. Light-bodied, bright and fresh aromas of citrus, passionfruit, pineapple rushing in, intermix white pepper and sage herbs. The finish is refined and lingering. Acid tension flow with good energy lends a mouthwatering, refreshing closing. Match with pan-fried whitefish and shellfish over the next 2 years. Fruit from Wairau Valley vineyards, harvested over three weeks, fermented in stainless steel to 13% alc, a small portion was fermented in large French oak barrels, a brief age on fine lees. 18.5-/20 (92 pts) Feb 2021 RRP $19.90
