If you’re convinced Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc has no personality, it may be worth seeking out Stoneleigh who do it better than most.
Stoneleigh, Latitude, Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough, 2017
Striking aromas, honey, caramelised passionfruit, grapefruit, roasted green capsicum, creamy lees work and some sulfidic/gunflint action usually reserved for the chardonnay set. Spiky, yet full and juicy palate: double jabs to the jaw, landing from range. Honeyed fruit spectrum with depth and with almost late harvest richness. Colour belies the power. A big hitter.
