Astrolabe Awatere Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2022
|New Zealand, Marlborough, Awatere Valley
Tasted blind, you'd be able to guess this 2022 Sauvignon Blanc was from the Awatere Valley: this cooler, windier sub-region typically produces Marlborough Sauvignons that sit in the greener flavor spectrum, rather than the tropical side. This is exemplary with its gooseberry, elderflower and green capsicum-like flavors. There's more than just flavor, nice weight builds through the mid palate, and there's decent concentration. Bright, sassy and zesty, drink now to enjoy the vibrancy of youth.
