Totara Sauvignon Blanc 2019
|Region||New Zealand, Marlborough, Wairau Valley|
Bright yellow in the glass, with hints of green at the core. This wine is punchy and aromatic on the nose showing notes of lemon, passion fruit and honey dew melon. Refreshingly lively on the palate, you will discover a core of rich citrus, stone fruit and a mouth-watering minerality. Drinks wonderfully for 2-3 years from vintage. Pairs with all seafood dishes, salads, goat cheese, and spicy Thai or Indian Food.
This is more open and less reductive than the previous vintage. The perfumed nose offers waxy lemon-lime, peach, tropical fruit and nettle characters. The mouthfeel is slippery and sliced with slightly biting acidity. There's just enough fruit weight and what feels like a touch of residual sugar there to counteract it.
