South Island Sauvignon Blanc

Wither Hills

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2017

It has been awhile since I have had a good Sauvignon Blanc and tonight is one of those nights. I have opened the 2017 Wither Hills Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough New Zealand.

A beautiful expression of Sauvignon Blanc on the nose is I am getting lime, kiwi fruit, nectarine, guava, papaya, herbs and wet concrete.

The palate brings out notes of lime, green apple, white peach, grapefruit, lemongrass, and crushed stone.

This wine is medium bodied with medium + acidity and that leads into crisp clean chalky finish. The weekend is on us and it looks to be a good one so please be safe and have fun. Nostrovia! πŸ₯‚πŸ₯‚πŸ₯‚πŸ₯‚

These ratings are garbage. This is an extremely high quality everyday SvBc. Flash-pan acidity is perfectly matched with ripe apples, fresh grass and gooseberry and a hint of jalapeΓ±o. What more could you want in a young Marlborough. It may not be expensive and it may be mass-produced, but thank your lucky stars that it is. ⭐️ β€” 10 days ago

This was from room service at the Moana Surfrider and was better than the one I got at the ABC Store. #loveblock β€” 12 hours ago

Brisk and crisp. A blast of lime and then unripe passionfruit and sharp pineapple. Great w a slightly spicy dish. My wife Heather gets credit for this pick. 😎 β€” 8 days ago
