Cielito Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 20-Feb-2018
Bright straw-yellow colour with slight lemon hues, paler on the rim. The nose is light and restrained with aromas of gooseberries and green stonefruits, fresh herbs and suggestions of lees and nutty wood, unveiling nuances of green beans and chalky minerals. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has good depth and concentration of gooseberry fruit and green stonefruits, along with fragrant fresh herbs. The fruit is lively and bright, and possesses a degree of succulence and lusciousness. Hints of green been add secondary detail. The mouthfeel is refreshing with crisp acidity and the wine flows along a light, textured line. The palate is well-balanced and has a long, lingering finish. A little shy on the nose, this is a bright and lively, vibrantly fruited Sauvignon Blanc with gooseberry and stonefruit flavours hints of complexing nutty and bean notes on a thirst-quenching, fine-textured palate. Match with herb-marinated white meat dishes over the next 2 years. MS clone fruit from the Wairau Valley, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 12 months on lees in French acacia wood puncheons. 55 dozen made. 17.5/20 Feb 2018 RRP $23.00 TBC
