Awatere River Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 06-Oct-2015
Bright, very pale straw colour, near colourless on the rim. This has a voluminous nose with a tightly bound core of passionfruit aromas entwined with gooseberry and grassy fruit, white stonefruits and florals and a subtle, chalky, flinty minerality. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the flavours of passionfruit and tropical fruits are melded with white stonefruits, fresh herbs and mineral elements forming a firm, concentrated core and line. The mouthfeel is dry and very fine-textured with lively, piquant and slippery acidity enhancing the flow. The palate carries to a fine-textured, bright finish with passionfruit and herb notes. This is a tightly concentrated, fine-textured, smooth-flowing, dry Sauvignon Blanc with passionfruit and mineral flavours. Serve as an aperitif and with seafood over the next 2+ years. 70% Awatere Valley from 3 vineyards, and 30% Wairau Valley fruit, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.8% alc. and 3.5 g/L RS. 17.5+/20 Oct 2015 RRP $23.00
