Craggy Range Te Muna Road Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2020
|Region||New Zealand, Wellington, Martinborough|
The Te Muna Sauvignon Blanc comes from a terrace a few kilometers outside of Martinborough township. This area is higher, more exposed and marginally cooler than the vineyards in town, which brings even greater risks but greater rewards for its makers. This example has lovely sinew, offering tension and precision from start to finish, and providing purpose and long length. There are subtle steely aromas that sit in the green and citrus spectrum rather than overt tropical fruit; expect honeydew melon, grass, beeswax and lemon flavors. Very nicely done.
