Peter Saunders Review, May 2020

Description

  • Dry style 
  • Capsicum

"Loaded with aromas of fresh herbs and tropical fruits, lemon, green apple and gooseberry. Fresh, crunchy, herbaceous and fruity on the palate with a satin texture, plenty of acidity and flavours that reflect the nose. Balanced and ready for Summer 2021 through Summer 2022" Cameron Douglas, MS, Oct 2020

"Fresh, crisp style, tasting near dry. True to variety in New Zealand, carrying the racy theme that has so much international appeal. A well made wine from a very good season.  Through 2022" Peter Saunders Review, May 2020 

The 2020 vintage exhibits capsicum, passionfruit and stonefruits. The pallet has great weight and structure.

Marlborough 2020 will be a vintage remembered for a number of reasons, mainly for being the vintage that was harvested during a world pandemic. New Zealand went into Level 4 lock down on midnight March 25th, which was the most critical time for harvest. Despite these unprecedented circumstances, the harvest was of exceptional quality, some of the best the region had seen in years. Overall, the Marlborough growing season was slightly longer and temperatures cooled toward the end of the season resulting in fuller flavoured fruit. A warm spring allowed the vines to evade frost, while an above-average rainfall lead to early flowering. The last significant spell of rainfall was mid-December with only 21mm between then and the end of harvest. Luckily the temperatures in January and February were more moderate than compared to the previous year, which reduced some of the effects of drought and lead to healthy fruit. The 2020 harvest, despite some unusual circumstances have produced some exceptional wines!

Food Pairing: We recommend this crisp Sauv Blanc to be paired with an asian style prawn pad thai marinated in a ginger garlic sauce.
