Serious sauvignon

Whitehaven Greg Awatere Single Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2018, Marlborough, NZD $28

Pungently sauvignon blanc, with concentrated green capsicum, gooseberry, tomato leaf and subtle passionfruit flavours. Rich, textural wine supported by soft acidity that helps drive a lengthy finish. A very satisfying sauvignon. (Screwcap)
