Brightwater Vineyards Nelson Sauvignon Blanc (2017)

Grown at Hope, on the Waimea Plains, and briefly lees-aged, this is a consistently attractive wine, fresh and punchy. The 2017 vintage (3.5*) has strongly varietal, herbaceous aromas and flavours. Full-bodied, with some tropical fruit notes and a grassy undercurrent, it is lively and generous, with youthful vigour and a dry (3.5 grams/litre of residual sugar) finish.
