Blank Canvas 'Abstract' Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Blank Canvas 'Abstract' Sauvignon Blanc 2018
Cameron Douglas, MS, (96 Points)Bob Campbell MW, (95 Points)Gourmet Traveller, (95 Points)
Marlborough Sauvignon is often all about fresh fruit, but this 96-point stunner is a different interpretation. Top winemaker Matt Thomson uses premium Dillons Point grapes, wild yeasts and fermentation in oak barrels. A superb, crisp, complex white.

The white wine
Matt Thomson has worked over 40 vintages in the 24 years he’s been a winemaker. He’s had experience around the globe and consulted for some of the most famous names in the business, but finally he decided, with his winemaker wife, Sophie, to make wine for himself. His Blank Canvas represents the vineyard, he says, the grape and winery his brush and palette. His favourite source for Sauvignon is Dillons Point and the Holdaway family’s vineyard (close to the sea) is one of the best. Fermented with wild yeasts in barrel, this is a complex, textured Kiwi Sauvignon. Instead, it's a rich, subtly spiced white, with passionfruit and guava and a saline edge. Unfiltered, it may have sediment. Simply let it settle. Ideal with seafood and white meats.
