Charles Wiffen ‘Reserve’ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2009

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 13-Sep-2011
Bright pale straw-yellow colour with pale green hues. This has an elegant and restrained nose of capsicums, gooseberries and herbs along with a delicate oak spiciness. Dry to taste, this has a full, weighty, vinous body and softly dense textures, matched by fresh acidity. The flavours are light, showing nectarines, herbs and minerals, with nuances of spice and savoury fruits emerging with air time. Fine, fresh acidity sustains the finish. Fruit from the ‘Wiffen' vineyard fermented to 12.9% alc. and dryness, 16% in old French barriques. A stylish, restrained wine with intricacies to match seafood, poultry and pork over the next 3-4 years. 17.0+/20 RRP $24.55 Disclaimer: This wine is distributed by ‘Wine2Trade', the company under which ‘Raymond Chan Wine Reviews' operates
