Frenzy Sauvignon Blanc 2019
|Region||New Zealand, Marlborough|
Straightforward lemon-lime notes show good intensity on a light and juicy frame, with touches of thyme and verbena on the finish. Drink now. 35,000 cases made, 35,000 cases imported.
A youthful, citrusy wine that shows some reductive, Band-Aid notes that perch above lemon-lime, dried herb and bell pepper characters. The reduction sits blanket-like over the palate as well, emphasizing the searing acidity. However, there's enough texture here that once this wines settles in the bottle-ideally in another six months to a year-it should make a solid and relatively well-balanced drop.
Frenzy's 2019 Sauvignon Blanc is a modestly expressive version of the variety, offering gentle passion-fruit aromas. It's light-bodied, expanding into fig and nectarine flavors on the palate, then finishing quickly, with a shot of lime.
