Astrolabe Valleys Kekerengu Coast Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc (2019)

Grown at Kekerengu, south of the Awatere Valley, the distinctive 2019 vintage (5*) was mostly handled in tanks, but 20 per cent of the blend was fermented in old oak casks. Well worth discovering, it is a highly individual wine, light lemon/green, mouthfilling and lively, with delicate, ripely herbaceous flavours, crisp and long. Finely poised, with a real sense of youthful drive, it should be at its best mid-2021+.
