2018 Sacred Hill Sauv blanc

Extremely pale in color, with a nice grapefruit nose along with some flinty/smokey notes, a little odd. On the mid palate the wine is pure grapefruit in flavor to me, but then I’m not sure gooseberry and nettles taste like (from the LCBO notes). On the medium length finish the lively acidity coats the palate nicely. It’s nice and dry! We had it with roast chicken legs and it went well, not a perfect pairing but still good. The wine is bold but not sharp. Some nice zest to it … This wine is in the general list. I would give it an 88 or so.

Cool climate winemaking methods capture maximum aroma and exuberant flavour in this New Zealand beauty. Nectarine, gooseberry, and nettle notes flavour the lush palate and the finish has a racy acidity. The grapes come from the Marlborough region of New Zealand, famous for vibrant, intense sauvignon blanc.
