Two Rivers Convergence Sauvignon Blanc 2020, Marlborough

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 19-Aug-2020
Bright, even, youthful pale yellow. The nose is vibrant with well-proportioned aromas of gooseberry, apple, kiwi, lime and zest, along with elderflower, slight flint and mineral. Light-bodied, gentle and bright flavour of Granny Smith's apple, lime and zest, kiwi fruit entwined with elderflower cordial, saline, oyster shells and prickly spices to a lengthy finish. The fruit is bright and fresh, crispy without being green or overly fruity. Smooth and clean textured with a roundness from the light lees ageing, complemented by a light chalky, oyster shells phenolic. Crisp, bright acidity flows with good energy and balance to a long finish. This is a crisp and pleasurable Sauvignon Blanc with a pure expression of green fruit, elderflower on a smooth-flowing, sea mineral texture line. Match with diamond clams and blue cod over the next 3-4 years. Fermented in a mixture of stainless steel, concrete egg and clay amphora to 13.5% alc, 3.2 g/l RS. Aged on lees for 3 months. 19-/20 pts Aug 2020 RRP $24
