Fincher Wairau Sauvignon Blanc 2019


Kritiker über Fincher Wairau Sauvignon Blanc 2019Wine Orbit (Sam Kim): 91/100.  Delightfully ripe and elegantly fragrant, the bouquet shows apricot, fig, kaffir lime and grapefruit notes, leading to a vibrant palate delivering terrific fruit power together with fine texture and crisp acidity. Beautifully composed and flavoursome. At its best: now to 2022.


Tasting Note:

An aromatic, yet delicate wine with elegant aromas of melon, guava, white peach, white currant and gooseberry. On the palate flavours of white currant, citrus, stone fruit and a salty minerality. A long, fresh finish.
