Otuwhero Estates 2009 Single Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc - 89pts
Availability: Limited (Canada)
Date Tasted: September 6th, 2010
Tasting Notes: A bright and energetic Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough chalk full of minerality and citrus fruits. A palate cleanser like no other without the battery acid harshness of some other over-reaching Sauvignon Blanc. The single vineyard fruit gives the wine an identity and sense of place. Much appreciated as many New Zealand wines, produced by the bid domaines, can sometimes feel like paint-by-numbers offerings. Enjoy now, while the wine is youthful and fresh. 2010-2012.
