Very enticing and fragrant bouquet with scents of white rose, white spice and wet pebbles with a flinty/organic layer. Grapefruit, lemon and apple emerge next. On the palate – palate grabbing youth with plenty of acidity and flavour – citrus, flowers, flint and white spice. A great example of SB with a few twists and turns ending in a lengthy finish. Drink now though best from 2018 through 2026.
Does a very good job of showing a drinker just how sophisticated sauvignon blanc can be from Marlborough, even without the oak/lees work of fancier versions of the same. This is a high class producer creating sauvignon blanc on another level.
