Jackson Estate Somerset Block 2 Single Vineyard Waihopai Valley Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc (2017)

Still on sale, the concentrated 2017 vintage (5*) was grown in the Waihopai Valley and handled entirely in tanks. An aromatic, intensely varietal wine, it is full-bodied and ripe, with strong tropical-fruit flavours, bottle-aged notes adding a toasty complexity, and a crisp, dry (3 grams/litre of residual sugar), lasting finish.
