Blind River – Sauvignon blanc 2016 – Awatere Valley – Marlborough
The nose is fruity, gourmand and offers a fine sensation of sweetness. it reveals notes of lemon, ripe pink grapefruit and fine notes of clementine combined with touches of exotic fruits (quenette, passion fruit), touches of minerality as well as a (very) discreet hint of zest and an imperceptible hint of toasted oak. The palate is fruity, fresh, well defined, mineral and offers a fine acid frame, a nice roundness as well as suavity. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of ripe lemon, clementine and fine touches of grapefruit combined with touches of passion fruit, quenette as well as a discreet hint of lychee, pear, slight hints of flint and an imperceptible hint of toasted oak. Good length. The finish is a bit suave.
