Cielito Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 20-Feb-2018
Bright, light straw-yellow colour, a little lighter on the edge. The bouquet is elegant and vibrant with aromas of gooseberries, nettles and green beans, along with subtle mineral nuances. This has clarity and focus, and is tightly bound. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has sweet and juicy, mouthwatering flavours of gooseberries and green beans, and is enlivened by brisk acidity. The fruit is lifted by fresh herb, nettle and floral notes. This is mouthwatering and refreshing, the flavours building to form an elegantly concentrated core. The wine carries along a very fine, dry-textured line, leading to a slender, lingering finish. This is an elegantly concentrated, mouthwatering Sauvignon Blanc with gooseberry, bean and nettle flavours and a light, dry line. Serve with seafood, salads and vegetables and Pacific Rim fare over the next 18 months to 2 years. MS clone fruit from the Wairau Valley, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 11.5% alc. and 5 g/L RS, the wine aged on lees in tank. 55 dozen made. 16.5+/20 Feb 2018 RRP $21.00 TBC
