Blank Canvas ‘Abstract’ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 14-Nov-2018
Bright straw-yellow colour with some depth, paler edged. The bouquet is elegant in proportion with finely concentrated aromas of green stonefruits, gooseberries, green capsicums, herbs and nettles, the aromatics with cool-spectrum notes, entwined with fine, underlying nutty oak. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has bold and up-front flavours of green stonefruits and gooseberries, along with green capsicums, nettles and cut-grass notes, layered with soft nutty notes. The flavours form a strong heart, and the mouthfeel is fresh with fine textures and good linearity carrying the wine to a light, lingering finish. This is a bold ad up-front oak-influenced Sauvignon Blanc with stonefruit, cut-grass, nettle and herb flavours with nutty oak. Match with Mediterranean fare over the next 3 years. Hand-picked fruit from the ‘Holdaway’ vineyard, Dillons Point, WBP and indigenous yeast fermented in seasoned French oak 500 L puncheons with full solids to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 11 months in barrel then given a further 2 months in tank. 18.0/20 Nov 2018 RRP $38.00
