Sauvignon Blanc 2017, Waipara Springs

About this wine

A wine which sets itself apart from 98% of all NZ Sauvignon Blanc is this release from Waipara Springs. Scott Berry is winemaker-in-chief and hands down one of the best winemakers in Frontier’s portfolio. Water white in appearance but with roomfilling aromatics of white peach, tropical fruit punch and citrus. The palate is full of braeburn apple and passionfruit. Beautifully light in body it reflects an understanding and appreciation of the varietal from Scott but more importantly for such an ubiquitous, nomadic grape, it has identity, poise and elegance which is so often lacking. A great SB!

The variety has classic zingy freshness, citrus notes and in the case of Marlborough in particular, gooseberry aromatics and flavours. Very pure, it can often be opulent yet also the opposite, with taut mineral notes. A classic, modern varietal with huge popularity, usually unoaked, there are an increasing number of food-focused expressions with a little barrel maturation adding texture and lift."
