Two Rivers Altitude Sauvignon Blanc 2018, Marlborough

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 29-Jul-2020
Bright, even, light yellow with some depth. The nose is softly elegant, with aromas of lemon curd, gooseberries, spiced pineapple, melded with elderflowers, cream and a subtle note of raw almond. Medium-bodied, dry to taste, the palate is elegant, aromas of lemon curd, lime sorbet, pineapple and gooseberries have a softly concentrated core, entwined with milk bread, cream and subtle spices. The mouthfeel is pleasurable like a whipped meringue, silken and creamy; along with chalky phenolic. Mouthwatering acidity is lacy and fine, flows harmoniously with a pineapple tone and spices to a long, lingering finish. This is an elegant Sauvignon Blanc with aromas of tropical fruit, lacy acidity and harmoniously fine palate. Match with white meat and seafood over the next 5 years. Handpicked from single-cane vines. Wild fermented in a mixture of concrete egg tank, clay amphora and seasoned French barrels to 13.5% alc, 1 g/l RS. Aged on full lees for months. 19/20 pts Aug 2020 RRP $36
