Supreme sauvignon

Rapaura Springs Reserve Sauvignon Blanc 2017, Marlborough, NZD $18.99

Always a high-performer this pungently fruity wine retains its position with the front-runners even in a difficult vintage like 2017. Passionfruit, guava dominate more herbal flavours. An ethereal texture and perfectly pitched balance complete the picture. (Screwcap)
