Blank Canvas Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc
Well known NZ winemaker Matt Thomson has finally released some wines under his own label. After years of making wine for other people, it's fair to say Matt knows his way around. All his initial releases have had much acclaim. Now fully into his stride and with partner Sophie joining him the wines are going from strength to strength. 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.
