The Hunting Lodge Expressions Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Vivacious - a wine which expresses the full spectrum of Marlborough. From the sun-baked, ancient riverbeds of the Wairau to the cool, dry terraces of the Awatere Valley - tropical punch meets herbal intensity and varietal purity with signature Savvie sweat. A passionfruit, pineapple and grapefruit medley dressed in dried sage, blackcurrant bud and gooseberry. The big, mouth-filling palate is restrained by chalky acidity which gives length and structure while subtle minerality and capsicum notes bring both complexity and Sauvignon typicity. Overt and intense, this wine reflects the dramatic and diverse landscapes of Marlborough. In this case, aroma and flavour speak a thousand words.

From select vineyards from the Wairau (85%) and Awatere (15%) Valleys.

5 Stars, Sam Kim, Wine Orbit "This is filled with classic sauvignon flavours; the lifted bouquet shows feijoa, Granny Smith apple, apricot and lemon zest aromas, leading to a succulent palate delivering excellent power and persistency. It's lively and tasty with a lengthy mouth-watering finish. At its best: now to 2023."
