Wairau River 2019 Rose Family Estate 1978 Sauvignon Blanc (Marlborough)

Though a bit reductive at first sniff, this blows off somewhat with time in the glass but the wine remains on the quiet side, relatively speaking. It offers notes of gooseberry, snow pea and tomato leaf on the nose. The palate is also vegetal driven, and acidity is a little biting without the luscious fruit to back it up. But those who favor the greener side to Marlborough Sauvignon will find this a solid drop. Christina Pickard
