Two Rivers ‘Convergence’ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 12-Oct-2018
Bright, pale straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, a little lighter on the edge. The nose is softly full with gentle concentration of white and green stonefruit aromas, along with gooseberry and fresh herb notes and suggestions of nuts and minerals. This has an underlying freshness and clarity, and is mouthwatering. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has bright and vibrant fruit flavours gooseberries with white and green stonefruits, and nuances of fresh herbs. The fruit has good presence and is mouthfilling with rich textures. Some phenolic grip, power and linear drive is present and the fruit is supported by fresh, lacy acidity. The wine flows to a very long and sustained finish. This is a surprisingly weighty and mouthfilling, textured Sauvignon Blanc with clarity of gooseberry, stonefruit and herb flavours with fresh acidity. Serve with salads and vegetables, and Mediterranean fare over the next 2+ years. Fruit from the ‘Richmond Brook’, ‘Dew’, ‘Coles’, ‘The Spring’ and ‘Grovetown’ vineyards in the Awatere, Southern Valleys and Rapaura sub-regions, vines 10-20 y.o., fermented in concrete egg, clay amphora and stainless-steel to 13.0% alc. and 3 g/L RS, the wine aged 3 months on lees in concrete. 18.5/20 Oct 2018 RRP $24.00
