Blank Canvas Holdaway Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc
Blank Canvas is industry veteran Matt Thomson's own project along with his MW wife Sophie. This single vineyard Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from the Holdaway vineyard at Dillons Point – Matt Thomson’s favourite sub-region for this variety. This is aromatic and herbaceous, zesty and fresh on the palate, quite fine and restrained with grapefruit and a hint of passion fruit, with a taught minerally almost saline finish. The best yet, really pure with lovely restraint.
95 Points - #1 New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc "A full-bodied Sauvignon that fills the mouth with an array of fresh fruit flavors, from Braeburn apples and lemon to pineapple and green capsicum. There's good substance here, giving you something to get your teeth into while the acidity creates an energy almost like a headlight's full beam turned on in your mouth. Bloody good."
