Wairau River Sauvignon Blanc 2013

With ripe tropical fruits and citrus notes and a finely textured palate, this wine would be great chilled on its own or with shellfish, seafood and chicken. COLOR Light straw AROMA Intense aromas of ripe tropical fruits and citrus. TASTE A rich, full mid-palate with guava and gooseberry, followed by lemon and limes on the finish, a real Wairau River trait. Length/Type of Fermentation: 100% Stainless steel vats
Editorial Reviews for Wairau River Sauvignon Blanc
Intense and complete on the nose with layers of grass, chilies, fresh zesty citrus fruit and dusty guava aromas. Big, rich and intense in the mouth. This is powerful and a bit dense with lots of follow-through. The succulent fruit is intense on the back end with grapefruit, guava and cut grass notes that are rich and fruity but not sweet. Really nice clarity on the palate. 88pts
