Soho Stella Sauvignon Blanc 2021, Marlborough 

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 17-Aug-2021
Bright, very pale yellow with a light green hue, even colour throughout. The nose is vibrant and softly full with aromas of lime, cassis, capsicum and delicate spices. Medium-light bodied, nuances of lime extends with lime zest, interweave cassis, blackcurrant leaf and fine spices; salinity lingers to a sustained finish. The mouthfeel is smooth and delicate with chalky phenolics. Thirst-quenching acidity is integrated and buoyant; salinity added interest and provided a moreish finish. This is a savoury Sauvignon Blanc with vibrant flavours on a chalky palate. Match with steamed clams & mussels and grilled flatfish over the next 3-4 years. The fruit was sourced from Wairau & Awatere Valleys, fermented to 12.5% alc. Vegan friendly. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) August 2021 RRP $26
