RADICAL WINERY CLEARANCE | EXPORT STOCK HEAVILY REDUCED.
90/100: SAM KIM | WINE ORBIT
A classic expression of quality Sauvignon Blanc from Paritua winemaker Jason Stent. This 2017 parcel was destined for the USA but a small parcel was surplus to requirements and we could not turn Paritua's 'take all remaining stock' offer down.
This wine was designed to be enjoyed a couple of years after bottling when the natural 'zestiness' of Sauvignon Blanc has subdued a little and it is in exciting form - exactly how good Hawkes Bay Sauvignon Blanc should be. It's a generous style with rounded mouthfeel and lots of tropical flavours but the dialed down acidity means it will have great appeal not just to Sauvignon fans, but to those looking for a crisp dry white wine at a killer price point. Brilliant buying.
