Greenhough River Garden Sauvignon Blanc, Nelson, South Island, New Zealand 2019
100% Organic. 98% Sauvignon Blanc and 2% Semillon. Wild fermentation 90% in tank and 10% in oak.
This has layers of complexity. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has a tight, deep and intense core of concentrated flavours of green stone fruits entwined with fresh herbs, stalks and cut-grass unfolding greengage and nettle notes. This is a complex, oak-influenced Sauvignon Blanc with green stone fruits and cool-spectrum flavours on a palate with fine textures and very good linearity.
“The 2019 vintage is the first to be labelled ‘River Garden’. Fresh and mouth filling, it is sweet-fruited, with generous, ripe tropical-fruit flavours, a subtle seasoning of oak, good drive through the palate, finely balanced acidity and a rounded finish. Already delicious, it offers excellent drinking now to 2021.” 5 Stars, Michael Cooper – Wine Buyer’s Guide 2020
“Showing excellent ripeness and a light touch of silkiness on the palate, the 2019 River Garden Sauvignon Blanc includes a small portion (10%) of barrel-fermented fruit. Nectarine and melon notes are joined by citrus flavors in the medium-bodied wine, which finishes with refreshing acids and lingering hints of tangerine.” 90/100, Joe Czerwinski – The Wine Advocate, April 2020
