Blind River Tekau Awatere Valley Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc (2018)

The delicious 2018 vintage (5*) is a distinctive, single-vineyard wine, fermented with indigenous yeasts in French oak barrels (partly new). Light gold, it is weighty, fleshy and dry (1.5 grams/litre of residual sugar), with concentrated tropical-fruit flavours, slightly toasty notes adding complexity, and a rich, rounded finish. It's drinking well now.
