Drylands Sauvignon Blanc 2008
Tight, tart and focused, with peach-accented lime and grapefruit flavors that hover enticingly over the crisp finish. Drink now. 15,000 cases imported.
Pale, bright yellow. Lemon, fresh herbs and pepper on the nose. Broad, supple and nicely filled in, with good intensity to the slightly sweaty pepper and saline flavors; I picked up a hint of horseradish. No shortage of personality here. Finishes with good persistence.
Archetypal Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, featuring pungent, herbal aromas to go alongside bold passion fruit notes. It shows ample weight in the mouth, even a slightly oily texture and pronounced green flavors that persist a good long time. Probably best with fresh tomato or strongly herbal dishes
