Whitehaven Block 11 Barrel Fermented Sauvignon Blanc 2022, Marlborough

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 18-Oct-2023
Bright, even, pale yellow with some depth. This has a rich bouquet packed with stonefruit, citrus, smoke flint aromas and subtle toasty elements. Medium-full bodied, aromas of peach, nectarine and lemon melded with melon, smoke flint and toast. The creamy mouthfeel embraces beautifully vibrant fruit; mouth-watering acidity elevates and refreshes the rich, toasty elements. This barrel-fermented Sauvignon Blanc has ripe fruit, well-structured, toasty details, lively acid tension, and a creamy, elegant mouthfeel. Match with roasted fish and pork over the next 3-5 years. Handpicked fruit from Rapaura, spontaneous fermentation, 13.3% alc, aged 13 months in old French oak puncheons. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Oct 2023 RRP $32
