New Zealand — Marlborough • $25.95 • 90/100

This is another fine Sauvignon Blanc from Greywacke. The wine is very pale straw in colour, lightly herbal on the nose, with hints of sweat, earth and hay, and a core of grapefruit and white peach. It is dry, with high acidity, balanced alcohol and a medium-full body. The rich, creamy texture suggests some lees stirring, but the vivid acids cut through and keep the palate bright and focused, while the grapefruit and stone fruit build and then linger on the stony-mineral finish. Excellent wine, and a very good value. • Tasted 2017-05-13 • LCBO id#164228 • Find it at your nearest LCBOCONNEXION OENOPHILIA (Agent)
