Rapaura Springs Rohe Rapaura Sauvignon Blanc 2022, Marlborough

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 16-Sep-2022
Bright, even, pale yellow with a light green sheen. The nose is full, with spice and subtle flint on the entry, underlined passionfruit, gooseberry, tomato vine and vegemite aromas. Medium-bodied, bright aromas of passionfruit, gooseberry and lime, entwined with tomato vine, subtle white spice and a savoury edge. The fruit is mouth-filling with weight and a cushioning mouthfeel, filling the palate generously. Fine powdery phenolics contribute to a silky flow supported by a savoury acid line. This Sauvignon Blanc shows generous fruit with weight and is adorned by savoury elements carried to a moreish, appetizing finish. Match with tomato & goat's cheese quiche and clams with seaweed butter over the next 3+ years. 13.5% alc. Gentle pressed, fermented with selected yeast strains in stainless steel to 13%. 19/20 pts (95 pts) Sep 2022 RRP $24.90
