Opawa 2013 Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 13% alc
Nose: A vibrant and punchy fruit laden bouquet - peach, citrus and apple all hold hands high shouting 'pick me'; there is also a softer floral note here which adds a wild ferment - like complexity (perhaps lees derived as well).
Palate: Crisp for sure - high acidity, but well balanced by vibrant citrus, sweet herbs and just picked pineapple flavors; a tiny hint of wood spice adds further interest and complexity; nice texture and a dry finish.
Note to Opawa's Winemaker - don't stop making this style please - the subtlety is delightful!
