Water white with a hint of green and gold appearance. Lifted aromatics of canned peaches, pineapple, fresh herbs, honeysuckle and elderflower. The palate bursts with white peach, cantaloupe, Cape gooseberry and green apple underscored by green tea and a ripe herbal backbone. Long citrus and mineral finish, with linear acidity balanced by creamy mouthfeel. Pair with oysters, seafood, spaghetti alle vongole and chicken.
Vinous
  • v90

A rather elegant and reserved Sauvignon Blanc. There's a sense of tranquility through the silky midpalate, with toned-down Marlborough aromas of honeydew melon, pear and elderflower. A little residual sugar (5g/L) gives a lick of sweetness on entry and fleshes out the palate, but the sweetness is balanced by the gently refreshing finish (although I'd personally prefer to see it even drier). A textured, restrained impression with partial fermentation in neutral oak and 20% malolactic conversion.
