Esk Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2016
|Region||New Zealand, Marlborough|
Wine EnthusiastPassion fruit and pea shoots mingle easily on the nose of this medium-bodied wine. This is a fully dry and somewhat austere Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, ending on notes of white grapefruit and hints of underripe stone fruit.
Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc has an intensely vegetal nose of asparagus tips and bell peppers over lime juice and green apple notes. The medium-bodied palate provides a great intensity of savory and citrus flavors with a wicked backbone of enlivening acidity and a long herbal finish.
Wine SpectatorFresh, with green pepper and lemongrass overtones to the crisp, juicy citrus flavors at the core. Drink now. 5,000 cases imported.
