Vavasour Sauvignon Blanc, Awatere Valley New Zealand 2017

A serious, concentrated and expressive wine, Vavasour Sauvignon Blanc has a powerful bouquet of fresh herbs, tropical fruits and bright citrus. Ripe stone fruit flavors and a distinct refreshing salty minerality as an expression of their vineyards on the coast. Very fine and just beautiful award-winning Sauvignon Blanc.

97 points, Decanter - Barely deeper than silver in the glass, this delicately vinified Marlborough Sauvignon evokes its origins with a clear, pervasive grass-and-pea-flower freshness. There's great restraint and purity here, with nothing obvious, sweaty or over-drawn. In the mouth, the wine is fresh, sappy, long and vivid, with those grass and sweet-pea notes balancing clean green apple fruit. The wine is roundly dry but without any cloying sweetness, harvested at (or blended to suggest) the perfect cusp of ripeness. 2018-2020
