Paddy Borthwick Sauvignon Blanc 2020, Wairarapa

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 11-Dec-2020
Bright, pale yellow with a light green hue, even colour throughout. The nose is full and vibrant, well packed with nuances of limes, gooseberries and guava melded with subtle spicy herb notes and a hint of minerals. Medium-bodied, the palate is harmonious and refined, aromas of guava, lime flash entwined fragrance of elderflowers, fresh herbs and lifting of white spices. The fruit is concentrated with ripeness balance, presented elegantly; well-proportioned fruit, floral and herb elements, lifted with a subtle white pepper note on the closing, added interest. Lacy acidity is well integrated and supportive, flow seamlessly with a fine-textured phenolic line. This is an elegant and harmonious Sauvignon Blanc with flavours of guava, lime and herbs along with beautiful subtleties on a fine-textured smooth flow. Match with pan-fried sole fish and whitebait over the next 3-4 years. Fermented in tank to 14% alc, on lees for serval months, no fining. 19/20 pts (95 pts) Dec 2020 RRP $22.95
