Awatere River Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 08-Sep-2014
Bright, very pale straw colour, near colourless. The nose is soft and elegant, in the cooler spectrum, with harmoniously melded aromas of gooseberries, nettles and cut-grass, revealing a minerally nuance with delicate fermentation esters lift. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, ethereal flavours of nettles, gooseberries grass and green capsicums exude a gentle sweetness and richness, the mouthfeel balanced by light textures and lacy, refreshing acidity. The wine flows gently and smoothly to a lingering finish with grassy elements. This is a soft, gentle flowing classical cooler spectrum Sauvignon Blanc with some fruit sweetness. Match with seafood, salads and vegetables and Asian cuisine over the next 2 years. Marlborough fruit cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.6% alc. and 3.4 g/L RS, the wine spending 2 months on lees. 17.5-/20 Sep 2014 RRP $23.00
