2017 Hoo­te­nanny Marl­bor­ough Sauvi­gnon Blanc

Halliday - - Sauvignon Blanc - Wine­mak­ers Rod Mc­Don­ald and Corey Ryan

The nose is fresh but clas­si­cally aro­matic, with un­mis­tak­able Marl­bor­ough aro­mas of goose­berry and grass. The palate is crisp with an ini­tial punch of lime, cit­rus and pas­sion­fruit car­ried to a long, dry fin­ish by its fine acid back­bone.

Why is this wine worth a try? It’s a con­tem­po­rary take on a clas­sic style, with the aro­mas one would ex­pect of the re­gion, but well bal­anced with beau­ti­ful min­er­al­ity.
