The Blind River Winery is located in the
Awatere Valley in
region. The famous Marlborough 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. Awatere
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.
