2016 De Bortoli 3 Tales Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

This Trans-Tasman wine affair between the Marris and De Bortoli families is pretty typical of most Marlborough Savvies, but with the passionfruit volume turned down a touch, which makes for a pleasant change. Aromas of the aforementioned passionfruits are joined by smells of lemons and subtle grassiness, then the palate kicks in with juicy lemony flavours, crunchy acidity and a thirst-quenching, zesty finish. Just the thing for tempura prawns and veggies.

Winemaker's Notes

Fresh acidity, with a touch of minerality ensures the finish is crisp and clean.

Expert Reviews

WINESTATE (2010 Vintage) says
Grassy/asparagus nose and spicy, tropical palate with some residual sugar and soft acid.

Nick Stock (2008 Vintage) says
"Brent Marris and Darren De Bortoli thought they might get some Savvy happening between them; Marris grows and makes it, De Bortoli delivers it to Australian shelves. This has really intense juicy Marlborough fruit impact; big, fresh and beautiful."

Ken Gargett (2008 Vintage) says
"Pungent style in this joint effort from Kiwi Brent Marris and Aussie Darren De Bortoli. Ripe, with some intense tropical notes, but not over-the-top. Good acidity and a softer finish than some."
