Wine: Konrad Single Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2016
Awarded: Gold (2017)
Buy: Currently unavailable online
Notes: Wow! Everything we have come to expect from Konrad’s carefully crafted signature Sauvignon Blanc. Gooseberry, grapefruit and herbaceous nuances on the nose lead to a mouthwateringly crisp palate. Lively grapefruit and passionfruit flavours complimented by complexity from herbal notes and hints of flinty mineral.
To summarise this is everything you have come to expect from a Marlborough regional Sauvignon Blanc and more. This will mature in the bottle over the next 3-5 years, but if you want to enjoy the lively nature of this wine you will want to drink before the end of 2018.
Quite a few of these bottles are destined for the export market, so if you are in Europe- then you are in luck. Domestic buyers may have to shop around, or spot them on restaurant wine lists, otherwise contact Konrad directly.
