A brand-new wine from importer George Galey, this debut Sauvignon blends fruit from the Awatere and Wairau valleys under the watchful eye of Vavasour winemaker Glenn Thomas to make a mouthfilling wine loaded with gooseberry and pink grapefruit flavors. Drier than many NZ Sauvignons, it picks up intriguing hints of tangerine, musk and spice on the finish.
A light- to medium-bodied Sauvignon, the 2009 Discovery is more delicate than many of its counterparts, with hints of stuck flint, accenting stone fruit and citrus flavors. Turns chalky and crisp on the finish. Drink now.
