Blank Canvas Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 14-Nov-2018
Bright, very pale straw colour with slight green hues, near colourless on the edge. The nose is elegant in proportion with finely concentrated, deeply penetrating aromas of pungent passionfruit harmoniously melded with tropical fruit and fresh herbs, with green stonefruit elements. This is refined in its intensity. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has fulsome and rich flavours of pungent passionfruit with tropical fruits and herbs. The mouthfeel shows some light, grainy phenolic textures allied to refreshing acidity, and the wine carries with good energy and drive to a long, lingering finish. This is a rich, fulsome and textural dry Sauvignon Blanc with intense passionfruit, tropical fruit and herb flavours with grip and fresh acidity. Match with seafood, salads and vegetables and Pacific Rim fare over the next 2+ years. Fruit from the ‘Holdaway’ vineyard, Dillons Point, fermented in stainless-steel to 13.0% alc. and 2 g/L RS. 18.5/20 Nov 2018 RRP $26.00
