Tinpot Hut Sauvignon Blanc 2020 | New Zealand’s Best Sauvignon Blanc!
The new release of Tinpot Hut’s signature Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is back! Tinpot Hut Sauvignon Blanc 2020 is a Pale platinum straw with green hues throughout. The nose has a gorgeous array of citrus peels, tropical fruits, ruby red grapefruit, guava, green mango, papaya, and kumquat. The wine is squeaky clean on the palate with rounded edges. There is still plenty of zing and raciness, this vintage just happens to exude more elegance and minerality on the finish. It’s truly outstanding! Drink now – 2024.
Tinpot Hut Sauvignon Blanc 2020 is “Everything a Sauvignon Blanc should be,” while another wrote, “I have bought it three times now.” Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver has made it a staple at home, saying “Love your wine, always have some in the cellar.”
Winemaker Fiona Turner | New Vintage
Tinpot Hut’s owner and winemaker Fiona Turner crafts exceptional wines from her Home Block vineyard. While established in 2005 in Blind River. Then Marlborough’s newest, highly lauded subregion. Which is fast earning the reputation as its best.
So her oenological skills have taken her to California, Hawke’s Bay, Central Otago, and Marlborough. Where she now lives, works and plays. Most of all Fiona Turner focuses on producing wines that are true to variety. And expressing the characteristics inherent on the vine.
Decanter gave 98 points – an unheard-of score for a Sauv Blanc
Master of Wine Rebecca Gibb lauded Tinpot Hut’s 2018 release in Decanter for its “rich, aromatic and supple style redolent of tropical fruits ranging from pineapple to passionfruit,” all of it cut through with energizing acidity. We adored its guava, pineapple, and lime zest notes lifted by exotic hints of lemongrass. In essence, Tinpot Hut Sauvignon Blanc fuses freshness with clean, zippy minerality in a white that’s comfortable by the pool, tailgate, or dinner table.
With Turner at the helm, the Tinpot Hut Sauvignon Blanc has more than earned its reputation as a critical and Wine Access favorite. In case you missed it: The 2016 vintage received the highest score ever for a Sauvignon Blanc—a near-perfect 98 points from Decanter. And this 2019 is a worthy successor to the last three terrific vintages.
