Yealands Estate Awatere 2012, Marlborough, South Island
Marlborough, New Zealand
...This Sauvignon Blanc is produced from vineyards located in the Awatere Valley, Marlborough’s southern-most and coolest sub-region. The wind sweep vineyards are directly on the sea, with the harsh growing conditions producing leafy black current and spicy and salty notes in the wine. Medium-bodied and juicy, with good concentration and length. Drink now fresh seafood or Asian-inspired fish dishes. Score: 89 (Janet Dorozynski, www.WineAlign.com, Mar 2012)
