Lime Rock Central Hawke's Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Lime Rock Central Hawke's Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Complex, pure, refreshing, inviting and youthful bouquet. Aromas and flavours of citrus, yellow and white orchard fruits, a saline and mineral core, leesy textures and salivating acid line. The texture of this wine is as interesting and intriguing as the core of fruit and varietal reminders of sweet herb and tropical fruit. A delightful example with best drinking from today and through 2022.

Lime Rock Central Hawke's Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Lime Rock Central Hawke’s Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Youthful, fresh, varietal and vivid bouquet with aromas of grapefruit and mineral, apple and lemon, some white flowers and white peach. Equally fresh and delicious on the palate with pulsing, almost electric acidity and flavours of fresh herb, citrus and white orchard fruits. There’s a salty note emphasising the acidity and minerality. Well made, youthful and crunchy. Best drinking from today and through 2023.
