Akarua Central Otago Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 01-Oct-2017
Bright, very pale straw colour with slight green hues, near colourless on the rim. The nose is elegant and tightly bound with fresh aromas of gooseberries, subtle notes of white florals, unfolding green capsicums, herbs, nutty elements and minerals. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a softly concentrated core of bright gooseberry fruit, along with cut grass, green capsicums and herbs, with nutty hints. The mouthfeel is bright and zesty with brisk acidity, and the wine flows along a fine, dry, mouthwatering phenolic-textured line. The flavours lead to a crisp, elegant, lingering finish. This is a refreshing, elegant and softly concentrated Sauvignon Blanc with gooseberry and cooler spectrum flavours on a dry, light-textured, thirst-quenching palate. Serve with seafood, salads and vegetables over the next 2 years. Hand-picked fruit from the ‘Tait’ vineyard, Pisa, WBP and fermented partially with indigenous yeasts in tank with 20% in seasoned oak to 12.0% alc. and 3.9 g/L RS, the wine aged on lees. 16.5+/20 Oct 2017 RRP $26.00
