Te Awa ‘Left Field’ Nelson Sauvignon Blanc 2019. The classic New Zealand grape variety, from Nelson, a wine region top the West of Marlborough on the South Island.
Passion fruit, nectarine and lemongrass parade before the beholder. Gentle scents of green herb and flamboyant tropical fruit arrive on the scene while a light footed streak of crisp vibrancy departs side stage.
A blend of 91% Sauvignon Blanc from Nelson and 9% from Waipara on the South Island. Fermentation in stainless steel tanks and a little residual sugar was retained to add a touch of richness. Strongly aromatic with a crisp vibrancy to the finish; it shows aromas of passion fruit, nectarine and lemongrass alongside other green herbs. Perfect with zingy flavoured shellfish and Thai food generally.
