Charles Wiffen Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2011

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 07-Jun-2012
Fruit sourced from a selection of ‘Wiffen' blocks, 10% fermented in seasoned French oak barriques to 13.0% alc. and 2.1 g/L rs, the wine given light lees contact. Bright, very pale straw colour with some green hues, pale on rim. The nose is softly full and voluminous, showing ripe gooseberry fruit, yellow capsicums and subtle hints of tropical fruits. Dry to taste, clean, fresh gooseberry and capsicum flavours gently unfold and flow seamlessly through the palate. The mouthfeel is smooth and the acidity is well-balanced and lacy. There is a gradual building of weight and presence which adds to the drive, leading to a moderately long, delicately nuance finish of limes and white florals. This is a gently expressed Sauvignon Blanc with good presence and fine textures to match with seafood and poultry dishes over the next 2 years. 17.5-/20 Jun 2012 RRP $21.35 Disclaimer: This wine is distributed by ‘Wine2Trade', the company under which ‘Raymond Chan Wine Reviews' operates
