In the latest New Zealand Listener, well-respected wine writer Michael Cooper enthuses about the newly released 2021 Sauvignon Blancs:
"The 2021 harvest delivered a small crop, 18% lighter than in 2020. But the good news is that small vintages typically yield wines with greater concentration than usual, and you can see that in the strikingly aromatic, flavour-packed 2021 Sauvignon Blancs now arriving on the shelves."
We were super-proud to see our Savvy featured in the list of his favourite new releases:
4½ Stars for Blackenbrook Nelson Sauvignon Blanc 2021
Estate-grown in Tasman, this hand-harvested wine was fermented in tanks (mostly) and old oak barrels (4%). Highly aromatic, it is fresh and punchy, with an array of herbaceous and tropical fruit flavours, a touch of complexity and a crisp, dry, lasting finish.
