The Darling, Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc (2020)

Offering great value, the vigorous 2020 vintage (5*) was grown at three sites in the Wairau Valley and 10 per cent of the blend was barrel-fermented. Bright, light lemon/green, it is freshly scented and full-bodied, with intense, vibrant, tropical fruit flavours, a herbaceous undercurrent, a distinct touch of complexity and a lengthy finish. Best drinking 2022. Certified organic.
