Blind River Sauvignon Blanc 2011

The Blind River Winery is located in the Awatere Valley in Marlborough region. The famous Awatere River divides the valley as it winds its way to the east coast. The closest major town is Blenheim which sounds more like a pumpkin than a town.

What increases the enjoyment level on Sav Blanc? For me it is mouth feel or texture as so many are fermented quickly without lees contact or barrel fermentation. This wine sees both and the mouth feel is beautiful. It is a little creamer as well but the acidity and flavour are bright and zesty. It wasn’t what I expected as I was thinking ‘just another typical blanc but it was much more than that. Think lemon grass, gooseberries with a fruit or tropical nature with zest on the back-palate pulling everything together.
