Barker's Marque 3 Brooms 2019 (New Zealand: Marlborough) (ID# 1762)

Name Barker's Marque 3 Brooms 2019 (ID# 1762)
Varietal Sauvignon Blanc
Region New Zealand: Marlborough
Notes "While there's nothing outside the box about this wine, it is classic Marlborough in all the best ways, finding balance and texture amid all the fruit and freshness. It opens with a pretty, perfumed nose of bright lime leaf, jalapeƱo and tomato leaf. The acidity is crisp and lifted but neatly harmonized by a chalky texture and juicy, citrusy fruit." (Wine Enthusiast)

Additional Notes

"Sourced from the Blind River section of the Awatere Valley, the 2019 Three Brooms Sauvignon Blanc is essentially the Barker's Marque flagship. Hints of tomato stalk mark the nose, while the medium-bodied palate delivers vibrant notes of nectarine, passion fruit and grapefruit, finishing long and crisp. It's a solid effort to drink over the next year or so." (Wine Advocate) "White pepper and talcum powder notes mingle with lemon-lime flavors and a touch of grapefruit pith on a crisp, zingy body." (Wine Spectator)
