2017 Folium Reserve Sauvignon Blanc
This is quite lovely. It’s not typical Marlborough Sauvignon in style. There’s a real flourish of ripe citrus: mandarin, lemons, grapefruit. And there’s a touch of honey, a faint toastiness, and lovely fine green hints around the fringes. It’s a delicate wine of real finesse with some canteloup melon, too.
It’s sealed with a cork not a screwcap (DIAM), and I think this has helped with the openness texturally that this wine displays. There’s a slight umami savouriness here, and some green tea and leafy notes in the background.
