Coal Pit Central Otago Sauvignon Blanc (2020)

The youthful 2019 vintage (3.5*) is a single-vineyard wine, hand-picked from mature, 25-year-old vines at Gibbston. Bright, light lemon/green, it is aromatic, crisp and freshly herbaceous, in a medium-bodied, strongly varietal style, with appetising acidity, and punchy melon and green-capsicum flavours. Best drinking 2021+. The 2020 vintage (3.5*) is a fresh, medium-bodied wine, with very good depth of crisp, green apple flavours, a touch of complexity, firm acid spine and a dryish (6 grams/litre of residual sugar) finish.
