TWR Sauvignon Blanc 2018
This 2018 Sauvignon Blanc is a blend from two special Marlborough vineyards in two different sub- regions. One vineyard is in the upper Awatere Valley, and the second is Jason and Anna Flowerday's certified organic, home block vines in Renwick (Wairau Valley). The growing conditions in the Awatere Valley are characterised by cooler temperatures and slower ripening than in the Wairau, which is important for flavour development and ripe acidity.
The Te Whare Ra home block experiences the warmer days of the Wairau Valley and a bigger diurnal range, giving wines of great texture and fleshiness. The 2018 release shows distinctive Awatere characters of guava, white currant and elderflower coupled with lovely ripe tropicals and hints of basil and lime from the Wairau fruit. These follow through to the palate, which is fine and soft with vibrant, fleshy fruit and great texture which are both balanced by a ripe, juicy acidity and lingering minerality.
The Wine Front – Marlborough sauvignon blanc from one of the region’s best producers. Mostly fermented in stainless steel but 8% barrel fermented. 3000 dozen only. It’s a sauvignon blanc with a bit of presence. Just enough. It tastes of lemongrass, citrus and passionfruit pulp, whispers of woodsmoke and gravel adding gravity. It’s not heavy but it has some weight, some purpose. Its textural qualities almost go without saying. It’s good.
