Auntsfield ‘Single Vineyard’ Southern Valleys Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 03-Oct-2018
Bright, light straw-yellow colour with slight green hues. The nose is full and softly voluminous with subtle aromas of passionfruit entwined with hints of nettles and fresh herbs. The aromatics form a fine and intense core. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has soft and elegantly packed flavours of vibrant passionfruit intermixed with fresh herbs, nettles and cut-grass. The fruit is finely concentrated and flows along a very fine-textured line, enlivened by lacy acidity. The flavours are restrained, but the palate has good presence and vinosity, and the wine carries to a lingering, nuanced finish. This is an elegant and softly restrained Sauvignon Blanc with cool-spectrum passionfruit, herb and nettle flavours on a finely concentrated core with fresh acidity. Serve with salads and vegetables over the next 2 years. Fruit fermented in stainless-steel, with 2% in seasoned oak to 13.0% alc. 18.0/20 Oct 2018 RRP $25.00
