GOLD MEDAL | NWWA 21
FIVE STARS 94/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
The team at Awatere River focus on quality over quantity and you can be sure that this plush 2020 Sauvignon simply screams quality. A punchy style with plenty of palate weight and crunchy fruit characters supported by fresh acidity. Delicious wine in the premium Marlborough style.
The winery writes "Full and juicy on the palate with ripe, concentrated flavours, tangy freshness and a long finish showing typical minerality. A vibrant wine showing purity."
Sam Kim writes "It's splendidly fruited and intensely aromatic, showing green rockmelon, passionfruit, kaffir lime and crunchy apple characters on the nose, followed by a succulent palate that delivers excellent fruit concentration and persistency. Wonderfully flavoursome and lingering."
Excellent value for money will buy again
