Rimapere Plot 101 Sauvignon Blanc 2022, Marlborough

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 30-Jun-2023
Bright, even, pale yellow. This has a rich, flinty, savoury bouquet with aromas of mineral flint, roasted nuts, tropical fruit and apple skins. Medium-full bodied, aromas of passionfruit and guava melded with apple & pear skins, cashew and flint. The acid tension lengthens and balances the rich, barrel-fermented elements. Fine-textured phenolics contribute to a layer of savoury detail, reflect saline and provide a sustained finish. Match with salt cod brandade and goats' cheese walnut ravioli over the next 3-5 years. Handpicked, 50% barrel-fermented, aged on lees, no MLF. 13% alc. 1,500 cases produced. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) June 2023 RRP $45
