Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Wairau River Marlborough New Zealand

90 2016-20

This is a classic Sauvignon from the south island with its crunchy gooseberry nose herbal and fresh fruit on the palate. The flavours are not overdone the mid palate attractively fragrant almost discreet with lime and lemon giving a racy freshness on the finish, a wine that goes well with shrimps and prawns, lighter flavoured fish but is not overpowered by chicken.
