Aotea by Seifried Nelson Sauvignon Blanc (2021)

The 2021 vintage (4.5*) is based on 'the very best fruit harvested from our family vineyard'. Bright, light yellow/green, it is a fresh, medium-bodied wine, with very good vigour and intensity of passionfruit, lime and green capsicum flavours, firm acid spine and a basically dry (4.5 grams/litre of residual sugar) finish. Best drinking mid-2022+.
