2015 Wither Hills Sauvignon Blanc

MARLBOROUGH, NEW ZEALAND
"An exceptional Sauvignon Blanc in that it has the tart, crisp elements ... but here the acidity is subtly tempered by what seems to be a cushion of softness. It is this very duality that makes Whither Hills’ Sauvignon Blanc both fascinating and succulent."

Tasting Notes

Distinctly Marlborough, this Sauvignon Blanc exudes vibrant ripe citrus notes, crunchy greens and hints of tropical guava on the nose. The palate is refined and elegant with superb natural fruit weight providing a juicy core of layered fruit, entwined with a salty textural acidity, vibrant citrus pith and a moreish dry chalky finish. Another remarkable Wither Hills Sauvignon Blanc! A perfect match with oysters, sushi & sashimi, salads and spicy dishes. Or simply on the patio with great company and repartee.
