Tasting notes

01/05/2011

A partnership between Pascal Jolivet of Sancerre and New Zealand's Trinity Hill, this is a mouthwatering, focused beauty that calls for a reassessment of any notions of one-dimensional Kiwi Sauvignon Blanc. There's a mineral underbelly that counters teh breezy fruity flavours of pink grapefruit, rhubarb and gooseberry. Alc: 13.5%. (18 points) £14.95
