Settlement Heritage Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2020 (91 VM)

The 2020 Sauvignon Blanc Heritage Vineyard is a more restrained and supple style from Marlborough. This is not a tropical fruit party; we’re in the grapefruit, elderflower and citrus spectrum, with 15% wild ferment bringing an attractive note of white flowers. Firm acidity makes for a tangy, clean and bright finish. There’s light, fine-grained texture on the medium-length finish, which conveys a sense of calm. I look forward to seeing more from Steve and Kirsty at Settlement.” – Rebecca Gibb MW
