Allan Scott Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 07-Jun-2017
Bright, very pale straw colour, with slight green hues, near colourless on the rim. The nose is softly full and voluminous with attractively aromatic passionfruit with gooseberry and herbal notes at the core. The fruit is lifted by gentle fermentation esters. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has moderately deep flavours of passionfruit, tropical fruits, fresh herbs and gooseberries with cut grass elements and some lifted fermentation esters. The mouthfeel is crisp and lively with brisk, underlying acidity, and the wine flows along a fine, tight-textured phenolic line that leads to a crisp, dry finish of passionfruit and chalky minerals. This is a very fresh and youthful Sauvignon Blanc with passionfruit, gooseberry and grassy flavours, along with lifted esters on a racy, fine-textured, dry palate. Serve as an aperitif, with salads and vegetables, and Pacific Rim fare over the next 2 years. Fruit from the Central Valley, the ‘Golden Mile’ of the Wairau Valley, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.5% alc. and 3.4 g/L RS. 17.5-/20 Jun 2017RRP $18.00
