2016 Craggy Range Te Muna Road Sauvignon Blanc
Martinborough, New Zealand
Think juicy and tart green apple, lime, lemongrass, dried coriander, and mouth-puckering acidity. A most wonderful Sauvignon Blanc.
$24.29 as part of a mixed case.
22 bottles available.
"Pale straw color with a green hue. Lovely aromas of citrus blossom, lime, jasmine and the faintest hint of fresh honey. Subtle flavors of fresh lime and grapefruit are balanced with a fine chalky texture that is reminiscent of the stones and limestone within the vineyard. Finishes dry, fresh and long."
"15% whole-bunched, 85% destemmed fruit. Fermented in oak barrique and stainless steel using a combination of neutral and indigenous yeasts.Matured five months in new French oak. 13% alc."
"92 pts ... This detailed white shows fresh fennel and celery leaf accents to the core of mandarin orange, papaya and lime flavors. Silky and very juicy, with plenty of elegance on the finish."
