Te Pa Sauvignon Blanc 2021, Marlborough

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 02-Sep-2021
Bright, pale yellow with a slight green hue, even colour throughout. The nose is pure and clean, with voluminous aromas of white cassis, gooseberries harmoniously melded with elderflower and tomato vine with a spice lifting. Medium-light-bodied, the palate is packed with the purity of white cassis, gooseberries, lime, effortlessly interweave with elderflower, tomato vine, and delicate white spice lingers to linearity. The wine is ethereally smooth flowing, guided by integrated, spicy acidity, carries concentrated fruit with elegance. There is a subtle, fine-textured, chalky minerally phenolics adorns the mouthfeel. This is a well-rounded Sauvignon Blanc with concentrated flavours of white cassis and gooseberries, elderflower and spice on an ethereally smooth-flowing palate. Match with clams with seaweed butter and pan-fried Dover sole over the next 3 years. Fruit from 62% MacDonald Family Home Vineyard, Wairau Bar, 28% Redwood Hills, Awatere Valley and 10% Alabama Vineyard, Wairau Valley. Fermented in separate batches, mostly in stainless steel tanks, aged on light lees. A small portion of new oak is used in the blend. 13.5% alc, 3.2g/l RS. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Sept 2021 RRP $18.95
