Food Pairings for Drylands Sauvignon Blanc
tropical nose, nice acidity, a little minerality, some catpee, some apples and lime
Upon initial inspection, this wines shows its differences from the previous years. It was slightly paler in color than the previous two years’ wines and it didn’t carry that tinge of green. Just a very pale yellow. Upon the nose you get a scent of melon and vanilla with a bit of clover. The scent of honey is a touch stronger than before, lending a touch more sweetness to the proceedings. On the palate it sings of honeydew melon along with honey and chalk. Yet there remains that bright acidity to tie its lineage back to the previous years.
Honey and honeydew melon followed by lemon/citrus. Bright acidity and good balance. I bought 7 or 8 recent NZ SB's, and this is the one that stands out so far after drinking 5 of them.
Great citrus explosion. Loved it!
External Reviews for Drylands Sauvignon Blanc
This brand's Sauvignon is from siltier, Rapaura soils, according to winemaker Alistair McIntosh. It's pungent and seaty, with hints of green bell pepper. There's a big, round mouthfeel, but the flavors are green and herbal.
Exuberantly fragrant, bursting with luscious gooseberry, passion fruit, grass and grapefruit flavors. Concentrated, almost oily, with lingering citrus tanginess and mineral nuances. Drink now.
Bracingly tart, with a vibrant core of pineapple, passion fruit and guava flavors that linger nicely on the beautifully pointed finish. Drink now.
Pale, bright color. Pungent aromas of lemon, quince and green pepper. Juicy and fairly supple but with a distinct tart edge to the flavors of lemon, green apple, quince and pepper. Possesses just enough flesh to avoid coming off as severe. (Another bottle, though, was leaner and a bit greener.)
Bright and concentrated, showing vibrant, focused green berry and herbal aromas and flavors, which echo with a touch of lime on the finish. Drink now.
Aggressively pungent and herbal without being over the top, this is Sauvignon Blanc that screams of its origins. Grapefruit and passion fruit flavors wash easily across the palate, leaving plenty of grassy herbaceousness in their wake, and a crisp, lingering finish. Drink now.
This silky white has a distinctive peppery note weaving through its pear and lime flavors, lingering easily and even delicately. Drink now.
