Te Whare Ra TWR Sauvignon Blanc 2022 750ml

Our 2022 release shows distinctive Awatere characters of guava, white currant, and elderflower coupled with lovely ripe passionfruit & tropical notes and hints of basil and lime from the Wairau fruit. These follow through to the palate – which is fine and soft with loads of fleshy fruit balanced by a ripe, juicy acidity and lingering minerality. There is real fruit weight here and that is complimented by lovely texture from the time on lees and the barrel parcels – It is utterly delicious!

94 Points: #10 of 63 in Marlborough Bob Campbell for The Real Review Smooth, seamless sauvignon with lemongrass, capsicum, lime, passionfruit and subtle mineral flavours. Refreshingly dry with a crisp, mouthwatering and lengthy finish. Refined and sophisticated wine. Drink 2022- 2026

93 Points - James Suckling for James Suckling.com A more Sancerre-like sauvignon blanc with sliced green apples, spiced pears, crushed stones and some gooseberries. Medium to full body. Round mouth-feel and steely acidity. From organically grown grapes.

94 Points - Sam Kim A beautifully styled Sauvignon, showing Granny Smith apple, nectarine, lime peel and fig characters on the nose. The palate displays pristine fruit flavours with refined texture and zesty acidity, finishing lingering and mouth-watering. Wonderfully expressive and harmonious with true varietal intensity and vibrancy. At its best: now to 2029.

93 Points Decanter - Tasted by Tina Gellie Part of 15 Wines under £20  Fruit from 1979-planted vines in Wairau (valley) supplements the majority from cooler Awatere (valley), with 10% of the blend fermented and lees aged in for about nine months in large old oak barrels. Weighty yet vibrant with a textured palate of nutty pear and ripe guava alongside greener elderflower and tomato leaf notes. Mouthwatering acidity and a long citrus finish really refreshes. Drinking window 2023 - 2025
