Sherwood Signature Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Sherwood Signature Sauvignon Blanc 2018 Hi-Res Label
Country: New Zealand
Winery: Sherwood Estate
Varietal: Sauvignon Blanc
UPC Code: 682302542114
Tasting Notes:

This has an engaging nose that is not quite as assertive or pungent as something that comes from its more northerly Marlborough counterpart, just toned down a notch. This still has classic Kiwi Sauvignon Blanc notes of lemon/lime citrus, gooseberry, guava and passion fruit touched up with a light note of jalapeno aromatically. Juicy and crisp with clean assorted tropical fruit flavors, this has nice linear drive in the palate leading to a dry, long and lingering finish. This is a nice contrast to the more standard Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc that most people are familiar with. Here it’s more downplayed aromatically but still blessed with the fruit intensity and underlying acidity that one expects from a well made Kiwi Sauvignon Blanc.

Awards, Reviews, And Other Notes:

90 pts Wine Spectator –
Fragrant orange blossom and crisp lemon meringue flavors are juicy and bright, with plenty of intensity and charm on the finish. Drink now. 7,000 cases made.

Winemaker Notes:

The signature wine of Sherwood estate, this Sauvignon Blanc is beautifully poised with a complex array of flavors – gooseberry, grapefruit, guava, limes and touches of mineral. Tightly woven with a crisp, tangy melange of tropical fruits countered with a lean racy finish that refreshes the palate.
