Bel Echo by Clos Henri ‘Terroir – Broadbridge’ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 03-Jan-2017
Bright, pale traw-yellow colour with slight green hues on the edge. This has a full, even and integrated bouquet with deep aromas of ripe gooseberries, tropical fruits, yellow capsicums, savoury herbs and a suggestion of green bean secondary development. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is rich and harmonious with gently mouthfilling , broad and accessible flavours of ripe gooseberries, tropical fruits and yellow capsicums, along with soft, savoury secondary green bean and asparagus development adding subtle detail. The rich fruit is well-balanced by soft, ripe acidity and the wine flows smoothly along a fine-textured line, leading to a long, sweet, tropical fruited finish. This is a harmonious Sauvignon Blanc with sweetly rich flavours of gooseberries and tropical fruits, capsicums, now beginning to show a little savoury, secondary interest. Match with Mediterranean fare over the next 2 years. MS clone fruit from ‘Broadbridge’ and ‘Wither’ clay soils, from vines 9-14 y.o., fermented in stainless-steel to 14.0% and <1.0 g/L RS, the wine aged 6 months on lees with batonnage. Certified BioGro organic. 17.5/20 Jan 2017 RRP $26.00
