Wither Hills Sauvignon Blanc 2022
|New Zealand, Marlborough, Wairau Valley
This offers lovely weight on the palate - an almost buxom character with an attractive silken texture. Ripe and round, the flavors head toward the stone fruit and honeydew melon spectrum. However, there are always background varietal notes of nettle and passion fruit lingering on the supple, medium-length finish, reminding you that we're still in Marlborough Sauvignon territory. Tasted as a tank sample.
Lemon curd, citrus zest and mango flavors are bright and juicy, with notes of orange blossom and candied ginger. Drink now. 120,000 cases made, 25,000 cases imported.
Vivid aromas of citrus and tropical fruit burst from the glass, followed by grass and summer green veg notes. The palate is crisp and a bit prickly. There's noticeable sulphur which leaves a slight burning sensation on the finish, but there's also plenty of bright fruit.
