Rapaura Springs Reserve Sauvignon Blanc 2021, Marlborough

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 13-Aug-2021
Bright, pale yellow, even colour throughout. The nose is softly full and lifted, nuances of lime, fresh-cut herbs, melded with gooseberries, guava and white spice. Medium-light bodied, aromas of guava, lime, mango layers entwined white spice and cut herbs. The flavours have intensity and depth, support by well-balanced lively acidity. Fine-textured, chalky phenolic carry a hint of sea salt linger to linearity. This is a refined Sauvignon Blanc with well-defined layers of tropical fruit, herbs and spices. Match with sweet & sour fish and steamed mussels over the next 3-4 years. The fruit was sourced from the Dillons Point and Wairau sub-regions, cool-fermented to 13.5% alc. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Aug 2021 RRP $18.99
