Riverby Estate Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc (2021)

The 2021 vintage (4*), a single-vineyard wine, grown at Rapaura, was mostly handled in tanks; a small portion of the blend was oak-aged. Bright, light lemon/green, it is fresh and full-bodied, with generous, ripe, passionfruit/lime flavours and a dry (2.5 grams/litre of residual sugar), finely balanced finish. Enjoyable young.
