Sidewood Sauvignon Blanc 2023
Coming out of a cool vintage, this gives all the good Sauvignon stuff in spades. It’s a front-end loaded aromatic powerhouse, full of passionfruit and pine-lime nasal excitement, and most likely a vintage-specific tarragon like herbal note. But there’s more to this wine than just the first-take, as the palate reverbs those exotic flavours with salivating acidity and pithy textural balance, filling out the finish, mouthwatering yet with satisfying, in a lingering afterglow. Filled with vinous pleasure.
