Section 94 is one of the world’s most distinct wines, and regularly named New Zealand’s greatest Sauvignon Blanc. Bright straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, lighter on edge. The bouquet is firmly concentrated with deep aromas of greengages, nectarines and fresh herbs, harmoniously melded with complexing reductive gunflint and mineral layers. The aromatics are intense and youthfully fresh, but stylishly in presentation, revealing white florals and lifted herb elements, along with an array of stonefruit. Dry to taste and full-bodied, rich, bold and concentrated flavours of green stonefruits, fresh herbs, white florals and gunflint complexities feature on a fulsome, well-structured palate. This is mouthfilling and weighty with grip and presence, and the mouthfeel lively with refreshing, lacy acidity. The wine flows with power, texture and drive, leading to a long, dry finish with herb, greengage and minerally detail. This is a rich, powerfully structured and textural oak-influenced Sauvignon Blanc with green stonefruit and complex reductive complexities. Match with herb-marinated white meat dishes over the next 4-5 years.
