Rapaura Springs Bull Paddock Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2021, Marlborough

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 24-Aug-2021
Bright, very pale yellow, even colour throughout. The nose is full and distinctive, filled the glass with aromas of lime, cassis, mango, interweave sage and oyster shells. Medium-light bodied, dry to taste, well-proportioned, discreet aromas of lime, cassis, and mango enliven by saline, oyster shells, sage, and spicy herb notes. Subtle elderflower nuance meld in the mix. The mouthfeel is smooth, flows elegantly with finely chalky phenolics. Savoury nuances of sage and saline persist to a long finish, suggesting food. This is a stylish Sauvignon Blanc with a strong sense of place, elegant mouthfeel and finesse. Match with langoustine and goat's cheese ravioli with sage butter over the next 3-5 years. The fruit was sourced from Dillons Point, Lower Wairau Valley, fermented in stainless steel to 13.5% alc, 3.6g/l RS. 19+/20 pts (96 pts) Aug 2021 RRP $27.90
