Loveblock Sauvignon Blanc 2021, Marlborough

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 18-Oct-2022
Bright, pale straw-yellow, even colour throughout. The bouquet is calm and gently full, with aromas of mango and yellow stonefruit melded with wildflower, herb and maize. Medium-bodied, mango, nectarine and citrus aromas form a taut core, unfolding white spice, chervil, basil and maize. The mouthfeel is smooth and oily; fine-textured phenolics contribute to a chewy palate. Mouth-watering acidity appears softly and flows with good energy. This is a complex, savoury Sauvignon Blanc with perfectly ripe fruit and spice details on a textural palate. Match with goat cheese onion tart and crab linguine over the next 3-4 years. Fruit from Woolshed vineyard, organic certified. 35% of grapes were handpicked, fermented in concrete eggs, clay amphorae and neutral oak on its wild yeast. 65% machine harvested, fermented in stainless steel, 25% underwent MLF. 13% alc, 6.2 g/l RS. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Oct 2022 RRP $26.99
