Allan Scott Sauvignon Blanc 2020
|Region||New Zealand, Marlborough|
Stylish, generous and intense, featuring lemon curd, apricot and lime sherbet flavors that are vivid and mouthwatering, accented by details of matcha green tea, white pepper and passion fruit. Delivers terrific follow-through on the finish. Drink now. 48,000 cases made, 12,000 cases imported.
Beneath the salty, oniony character, this wine offers aromas of grapefruit, lemon, tomato leaf and jalapeño. The palate is creamy, sliced with crunchy acidity, soft citrus and an herbaceous note to finish.
The 2019 Sauvignon Blanc skews toward the greener end of the varietal spectrum, heading toward asparagus and green bean, balancing those out with passion fruit and lime. It's medium-bodied but tight and lean, with a crisp, almost-sour finish.
