Black Cottage ‘Reserve’ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 18-Feb-2014
Bright, very pale straw colour with slight green hues, near colourless. The nose is very fresh with subtly expressed, gently aromatic and piquant gooseberry fruits with herbs, white florals and minerally elements. Dry to taste and elegantly presented, fine and penetrating flavours of pure gooseberry fruit are enlivened and brightened by lacy, racy acidity, The mouthfeel has a slipperiness balanced by fine phenolic textures and the wine flows with plenty of tension and energy to a slender, long-lingering fish with juicy and brisk acidity. This is an elegant, tightly bound and youthfully racy Sauvignon Blanc with bright, piquant, gooseberry flavours. Serve as an aperitif, with antipasto and seafood over the next 2 years. Fruit from the Wairau and Awatere Valleys, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.5% alc. and 2.6 g/L RS. 17.0/20 Feb 2014 RRP $19.99
