Te Whare Ra SV 5182 Sauvignon Blanc 2022 750ml

This is our 2nd ever release of a Sauvignon Blanc under our SV5182 designation. We feel that this wine showcases the best expression of our site here at Te Whare Ra and the stellar quality of the 2022 vintage in Marlborough. This wine is the culmination of a 15 year project we have been pursuing with Sauvignon Blanc from our TWR home block. This wine is all about fruit weight and texture which is achieved with low crops, meticulous canopy management and lots of attention to detail with fruit selection. The focus was making a wine which has great texture and fleshiness and which is characterised by lots of layers and complexity with notes of ripe tropical notes with stone-fruit and citrus with a lovely line of ripe minerality.

Stephen Wong MW 95 points Very fresh, herbaceous nose, all green fruit and grass; citrus, salinity, gooseberries. Intense and pungent, this is classic Marlborough sauvignon blanc. The palate is textural and weighty, relying on graininess and phenolics as well as fruit density. There are hints of sweet apple and mascarpone adding complexity to the mid-palate. Powerful, backward, spicy and tight with the gooseberry drawing in on the finish to a saline, tangy finish. Intensely long, full-bodied and unevolved; this has a coiled power and chewiness that will see it develop over a few years. Drinking window 2024–2028
