Smith & Sheth, Cru, Sauvignon Blanc, Wairau Valley, Marlborough, New Zealand 2021
(at Menier Penthouse, London SE1, 27 Apr 2022)
Drinking Window: 2022 - 2023
A highlight at the recent press tasting, this is a step up from many Marlborough Sauvignon Blancs on the shelves, crafted by talented winemaker Steve Smith MW. Part-fermented in foudres to add a hint of mealy depth, this has vibrant but not overpowering Marlborough fruit, with notes of lime, blackcurrant leaf, herbs and a stony complexity. Lovely typicity, with class.
