Long regarded as one of New Zealand's finest Sauvignon Blanc, this 2020 Sauvignon Blanc is a blend from three specially selected vineyards in two different subregions of Marlborough. Two of the vineyards are in the upper Awatere Valley (Shamrock and Trelawne Farm) with the third being Te Whare Ra's certified organic home block in Renwick.
The 2020 Te Whare Ra Sauvignon Blanc release shows distinctive Awatere characters of guava, white currant and elderflower coupled with lovely ripe passionfruit and tropical notes and hints of basil and lime from the Wairau fruit.
These follow through to the palate, which is fine and soft with loads of fleshy fruit balanced by a ripe, juicy acidity and lingering minerality. There is real fruit weight here and that is complemented by lovely texture from the time on lees and the barrel parcels. A top class Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc that will only enhance the reputation of this producers.
"A blend of fruit from two vineyards in the Upper Awatere (90%) and 10% estate fruit from the Wairau, Te Whare Ra's 2020 Sauvignon Blanc is a racy head-turner, balancing ripe, tropical notes and ample breadth on the palate with zesty citrus and herb shadings, bright acids and a long, refreshing finish. 92 points."- Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate April 2021
