Astrolabe Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2020
|Region||New Zealand, Marlborough|
Pale straw with green highlights in appearance. Powerful gooseberry, white currant, red capsicum, passionfruit and lime peel aromas. Medium-bodied, with strong flavours of makrut lime, passionfruit, lemongrass and a refreshingly smooth, dry and persistent finish. Pairs well with fresh, leafy green salads; goat's cheese; seafood of all types; and dishes with lifted, aromatic herbs.
There's a lovely sense of harmony here. Voluptuous, silken midpalate and rather restrained fruit in the context of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc: melon, grassy notes, lemongrass and beeswax. Slight chalky grip on the firm finish.
