Platter * * * * ½ – Unoaked single-vineyard sauvignon intended as ‘true expression of Nitida terroir’. 2016 offers trademark rich, dusty grapefruit tang but with firm core & steely stature. Rewardingly broad & textured from extended 9-month lees ageing.
Consistent crunchy yellow cling peach tones set the stage. Interjections of chopped green coriander, celery stalks and showy lime citrus flaunt taut freshness. Splashes of green asparagus, ripe litchi and granadilla pulp appear as more mellow players.
100% Sauvignon Blanc
A swanky showstopper with seared salmon and watercress salad.
