French-styled savvie

Clos Henri Bel Echo Broadridge Sauvignon Blanc 2015, Marlborough, NZD $26

Weighty, textural sauvignon blanc that derives extra concentration and muscle from clay-rich soils. Quite a savoury, rather than overtly fruity style with wet stone/mineral, nut and toasty flavours. Good food wine that promises to develop well in bottle. (Screwcap)
