FIVE STARS 93/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
A superstar. Black Cottage was a huge hit with the Advintage Sauvignon Faithful last year and we know that this wonderful 2021 release will be the same. It's a gorgeous, premium styled Marlborough Sauvignon from talented winemaker David Clouston. This is a finely concentrated, soft-textured, powerfully fruited Sauvignon with a good line of gooseberry and passionfruit flavours. One thing's for sure - anyone who likes Sauvignon Blanc will love Black Cottage.
Vegan and vegetarian friendly.
The winery writes "The first of our 2021 vintage wines to be bottled, this early release has a complex nose of honeydew melon, paw paw, golden kiwifruit and a touch of elderflower. The zesty palate is packed full of blackcurrant, cucumber and lime flavours with a lick of salt. Good Structure, crunchy herbs and chalky acidity complete this lively wine."
Sam Kim writes "Wonderfully fruited and fabulously aromatic, showing kiwifruit, apricot, fresh fig and lemon zest characters on the nose. It's punchy and delectably expressed on the palate offering excellent fruit purity and intensity, backed by juicy acidity, offering excellent drinking."
