Aotea Nelson Sauvignon Blanc 2011

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 13-Sep-2011
Aotea is an on-premise label for Seifried Estate. Bright, light straw-yellow colour, this has a full, aromatic nose of stonefruits, white peaches and nectarines with delicate flinty elements. Dryish to taste, this is has gentle flavours of gooseberries, capsicums and stonefruits, underlined by vibrant acidity. The wine has balance and tension, the textures smooth and slippery, with excellent cut. Moderately luscious gooseberry and minerally flavours feature on the finish. A subtle-flavoured, well-balanced Sauvignon Blanc that will match seafood and poultry over the next 2+ years. Fruit from the ‘Brightwater' vineyard cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.0% alc. 16.5+/20 Sep 2011 RRP – On premise only
