Description

2019 was a lovely vintage in the Hawke's Bay so when presented with this Covid-19 inspired cancelled export order of Shepherd's Croft Hawke's Bay Sauvignon Blanc... we were eager to taste the sample and our expectations were well founded. The fruit comes off a cooler Hawke's Bay Ray's Road vineyard planted by Trinity Hill and an outstanding Sancerre producer early this millennium. The concentration, luscious depth of flavour and gently mouthwatering finish are incredibly appealing. It has a lot more fruit generosity than a typical Marlborough Sauvignon. At $9.99 bottle its hugely unlikely you will have consumed a dry white wine with this purity and generosity of flavour... because its domestic retail price is $22.99/bottle and it tastes like it should be selling around that money.

Smells

Nectarines, lemon and lime zest are accentuated with a hint of fresh melon.

Tastes

A stylish, balanced palate with significant concentration of stone fruit, passionfruit and soft citrus flavours that flood the palate and finish with energy in a luscious limey acidity. It will become richer and rounder through 2023, but it is so delicious now why bother.
