Black Cottage Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 17-Sep-2018
Bright, very pale straw colour with slight green hues, lighter on the edge. The nose is very fresh and fragrant with lifted pungent passionfruit aromas entwined with fresh herbs and tropical fruit, unfolding subtle chalky minerals, forming an elegant core. A little and cut-grass nuance adds detail. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is elegant and taut in expression with a fine core of pungent passionfruit with soft notes of tropical fruits and herbs. The fruit is fine in concentration and the wine flows along a light line with lacy acid energy, carrying to a restrained, but lingering finish. This is an elegant and tightly bound Sauvignon Blanc with a fine core of passionfruit, herbs and tropical fruit on a smooth-flowing palate with fresh acidity. Match with seafood, salads and vegetables over the next 2 years. Fruit from the Wairau and Awatere Valleys cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.0% alc. and 2.6 g/L RS. 17.0/20 Sep 2018 RRP $18.00
