Bellbird Spring ‘Block Eight’ Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Bellbird Spring ‘Block Eight’ Sauvignon Blanc 2013 $30 ★★★★★bellbird spring block 8 sauvignon blanc

This is a beautifully aromatic, organic sauvignon grown on Waipara’s ‘Glasnevin Gravels’.  Made by Guy Porter, it shows soft, finely tuned oak influence, elderflower, white peach and lemony characters.  It’s a stunning exercise in restraint with all the flavours and textures working in harmony, finishing with complex minerality and excellent persistence of flavour.  When it comes to snazzy, complex sauvignon blanc, Waipara’s clearly working it.  Sip with fish steamed with lemongrass and coriander. www.bellbirdspring.co.nz
