Charles Wiffen Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 11-Jan-2015
Bright, very pale straw colour with slight green hues, near colourless on edge. This has a very fresh and intense nose with concentrated aromas of gooseberry fruit entwined with grassy and nettle-like elements, along with lifted lime, green capsicum and mineral nuances. Dry to taste, tightly bound fruit flavours of gooseberries, grass and minerals show with clarity and focus. The mouthfeel is crisp, racy and refreshing with bracing acidity, and the wine follows a very fine-textured line. The palate leads to a dry, chalky, minerally, mouthwatering finish. This is a crisp, racy and dry, gooseberry-fruited Sauvignon Blanc with focus and clarity. Serve as an aperitif, with seafood and Pacific Rim fare over the next 2 years. Fruit from the Wiffen’s ‘Flipper’ block, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.2% alc. and 1.6 g/L RS, the wine aged on lees. 17.5+/20 Nov 2014 RRP $21.35 Disclaimer: This wine is distributed by ‘Wine2Trade’, the company under which ‘Raymond Chan Wine Reviews’ operates
