144 Islands Bay of Islands Sauvignon/Semillon (2019)

The fresh, lively 2019 vintage (4*) was hand-picked in the Home Block, near Kerikeri. Bright, light lemon/green, it is medium to full-bodied, with very good intensity of vibrant, ripely herbaceous flavours, a touch of complexity and fresh acidity. Drinking well now, it's still unfolding and should be at its best 2022+.
