Domain Road Sauvignon Blanc, Bannockburn, Central Otago, New Zealand, 2022

Grape: 100% hand-harvested Sauvignon Blanc from the Defiance & Domain Road vineyards, 50% fermented in stainless steel and 50% in French oak barriques, lees stirring in barrel.

Winery Tasting Note:

The colour of pale lemon, with clear hues, our Sauvignon Blanc is dry in style, complex and mouth filling. Fragrant on the nose with passionfruit, guava and a hint of citrus.  Passionfruit, apricot, white melon, gooseberry and nettle, with a hint of flint, are evident on the palate. A full mid palate and bright acidity lead to a long complex citrus and tropical finish. 

Critics' Tasting Notes:

"Bright, even, pale straw-yellow with a slight green tinge. The nose is gentle, stonefruit, tropical fruit melded with nettle, floral and a hint of flint. Medium-bodied, aromas of ripe nectarine, guava and passionfruit entwined with elderflower, flint and nettle. The mouthfeel is soft and creamy with weight and a smooth flow; lively, integrated acidity carries citrus zest along with fine-textured phenolics throughout the palate, lending a flinty, lightly spiced finish. This complex, gentle Sauvignon Blanc features savoury and creamy components underlined by a tropical core. Match with roasted pork and chicken over the next 5 years. Handpicked fruit from Domain Road and Defiance vineyards, whole bunch pressed, and cold settled, inoculated with selected yeast, fermented in stainless steel tank 50% and French oak barriques 50%, the barrel portion was lees stirred weekly. 14% alc, 4.7 g/l RS."

18.5/20 points, Raymond Chan Wine Reviews, November 2022

"A distinctive, floral, high tone bouquet with delicate perfumed aromas of elderflower, rosewater, Turkish delight and sandalwood with hints of smoke and vanilla. A lush, plush, weighty fruit forward style that's highly tasty and eminently drinkable". 

Excellent 93+ points, New Zealand Wine Rater

" This is, I think the 8th vintage of Domain Road Sauvignon Blanc that I've tasted and its fair to say that it is morphing into its own style and groove. Showing heightened jalapeño, lemongrass, basil, preserved lemon and lime layers, its definitely one for the herbaceously inclined.  Owners Graeme and Gillian Crosbie have done a superb job of turning an old apricot orchard into a vineyard with va-voom and their signature sauvignon, with its grassy, mineral driven dryness is good to go. Especially with lemon and caper-baked snapper". Yvonne Lorkin
