Te Whare Ra 2019 Sauvignon Blanc (Marlborough)

While TWR is celebrated more for its beautiful aromatic whites like Riesling and Pinot Gris, the latest Sauvignon is a young yet well-balanced drop. Notes of relatively ripe peach and citrus fruit run along a spine of green bell pepper and that feline funk typical to this style and region. On the palate, complexity is added to the bright citrus fruit and zingy acidity via a chalky texture. This is a solid and unforced SB that speaks, not shrieks, of its origins. Another year or two in bottle should add a whole new dimension here. Christina Pickard
