Ata Rangi 2019 Te Wa Sauvignon Blanc (Martinborough)

From stony, alluvial gravels and partially fermented on skins and in barrels, this wine starts with a perfume of pineapple and guava, an underlay of green rind and lavender characters. As it warms, a more subtle, stony minerality floats to the fore. In the mouth it feels young and vibrant, with bright fruit, a slippery texture and rapier acidity. A round, pithy grapefruit finish closes things out. Still a baby, this should blossom in another few years and gain boatloads of complexity with time. Drink 2021–2030. Christina Pickard
