Whitehaven Greg Awatere SV Sauvignon Blanc 2021, Marlborough

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 24-Dec-2021
Bright, even, very pale straw yellow. The nose is poised, tightly packed with aromas of lime, passionfruit, guava, entwined with citrus blossom, herbs, crunchy minerals and a whiff of sea breeze. Medium-light bodied, intense aromas of lime, guava, passionfruit elegantly presented, melded with tamarillo, tomato vine, nettle, followed by white spice, minerals and salinity. A strong acid backbone haul along with powdery phenolics, salinity linger to a long, refined finish. This elegant, vibrant Sauvignon Blanc shines with savoury minerality and excellent pristine, complex fruit flavours. Match with pan-fried flounder and goat's cheese ravioli over the next 3-4 years. Fermented to 13.5%, 2.6 g/l RS. Vegan friendly. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Dec 2021 RRP $28
