Wine: Odyssey Sauvignon Blanc 2014
Awarded: Gold (2015)
Notes: A vibrant, lively wine typical of the hugely successful Marlborough brand of Sauvignon. Plenty of tropical fruits, passionfruit and lime on the nose with these nuances coming through strongly in the flavour. Complexity builds with layers of fruit, minerality and just a hint of savoury green capsicum to create a balanced, structured wine.
Drinks well now, try and keep cellaring to a minimum to preserve the tropical intensity found in the 2014 vintage (1-2 years).
