Brookfields ‘Ohiti Estate’ Hawke’s Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 18-Oct-2018
Bright, pale straw-yellow colour with slight green hues and some depth, lighter on the rim. The nose is fresh and clean, a little restrained in expression, showing an amalgam of white stonefruits and fresh herbs, with subtle notes of whir florals. The fruit forms an elegant core with moderate intensity unfolding hints of minerals. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has a rounded and deep heart of white and green stonefruits along with notes of gooseberries and fresh herbs. The palate is enlivened by softly fresh, lacy acidity and there is some underlying power providing drive. The wine flows smoothly to a lingering finish of herbs and stonefruits. This is a deep and rounded Sauvignon Blanc with a smooth core of stonefruits, herbs and gooseberries with soft acid freshness and some underlying power. Match with salads and vegetables, and Mediterranean fare over the next 2 years. Fruit from the ‘Ohiti Estate’, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.5% alc. and 3.3 g/L RS, the wine aged on lees. 17.0+/20 Oct 2018 RRP $20.00
