Zephyr Organic Sauvignon Blanc 2021, Marlborough

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 24-Feb-2022
Bright, pale straw-yellow, even colour throughout. This nose is soft with bright aromas of Kaffir lime leaf, lemongrass underlying green apple, lime, peas and a hint of floral. Medium-light bodied, salivating palate packed with lime, tangerine and Granny Smith opened up to white spice melded with lemongrass, lime leaf, subtle floral and saline. The fruit is fresh and pure with good energy, supported by mouthwatering acid tension. Fine-textured phenolic extraction contributes to a silky mouthfeel. This is a crisp Sauvignon Blanc with good energy and purity on a fine-detailed palate. Match with steamed clams and pan-fried sole over the next 3+ years. Fruit from 60% Brawn Vineyard in Dillons Point and 40% Kennedys Road, fermented to 13% alc, 3 g/l RS. Organic certified. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Feb 2022 RRP $24
