Wairau River Sauvignon Blanc 2016
The Rose family uses some of the oldest vineyards on its estate (planted 1983) for this classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. This wine is characterised by intense tropical and stone fruit aromatics, with a ripe and a full-flavoured palate that has depth and texture. A fine, mineral acidity on the finish refreshes the palate and leaves you wanting more.
World Wine – Very distinctive bouquet with primary red fruits laced with light savoury spices, dried herb, baking spices and mild toasty oak and the promise of complexity on the palate. Dry, savoury, fruity and complex, still very youthful and poised for more bottle development; tense fine tannins, medium+ acidity, lengthy finish, wild!
In a mixed or straight case: $20.89
