Passing Giants Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc Organic 2021

New Zealand / Marlborough

Andy's Tasting Notes

Ooooh – this is beautifully layered and textured with class and refinement oozing from the glass.  Understated yet intense notes of pink grapefruit, lemon zest and passion fruit.  It’s so elegant and subtle yet there’s real substance and persistence.  A lovely Sauvignon Blanc.

Producer notes: In November 2020 a severe frost proved calamitous to the young buds, followed by flailing hail and then major drought in the three months prior to the 2021 harvest. Much of this inclemency is down to the clouds than define New Zealand’s climate and, after all, its Maori name. The whole cycle of life is entirely subject to the whim of weather and its climatic intemperance. A fleeting hail storm can wreak havoc in a vineyard, just as the absence of clouds will assist frost in cold climes and lead to drought in summer. The arc of the whole vintage is defined by these ephemeral structures that are sent to bless with rain yet whose unpredictability shapes the resulting harvest. We celebrate those cruel, fecund, damning and wine-defining weightless gods-above in Passing Giants, our new organic wine from Marlborough.
