Exemplar sauvignon

Villa-Maria-Templar-Sav-Blanc-2015-USEVilla Maria 2015 Templar Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough NZD$29.99

From the cooler Awatere Valley but showing a range of flavours from the grassy, capsicum and gooseberry end of the flavour spectrum to ripe melon, guava and tropical fruit characters. Sweet fruit is effectively balanced with tangy acidity that gives the wine a useful energy. A concentrated, classy Sauvignon. (Screwcap)
