Black Cottage Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 13-Aug-2016
Bright pale straw colour, lighter on the rim. The nose is tightly bound with fresh and youthful aromas of gooseberry and citrus fruits melded with mineral notes, unfolding nuances of fresh herbs and cut grass. The aromatics have intensity and depth. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is fine in concentration with a core of gooseberry fruit entwined with citrus and passionfruit elements, herbs and minerals. The mouthfeel is soft-textured with gently refreshing and lively acidity lifting the fruitiness. The wine has good linearity and fine-textures that carry to a fresh, zesty finish of gooseberries, passionfruit and minerals. This is a finely concentrated, soft-textured, gently fruity Sauvignon Blanc with a good line of gooseberry and passionfruit flavours. Serve with seafood, salads and vegetables over the next 2 years. Fruit from the Wairau, Southern and Awatere Valleys, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.0% alc. and 2.6 g/L RS. 17.0/20 Aug 2016 RRP $18.00
