Cirro Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 28-Sep-2015
Bright, very pale straw colour with slight green hues, near colourless on the rim. The nose is fresh with intense and well-concentrated aromas of ripe passionfruit interwoven with lime fruit, nuances of cut grass, fresh herbs and a thread of minerals, the aromatics expressed with focus and clarity. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate features a soft, lush core of passionfruit, tropical fruits, lime and cut grass. The mouthfeel is fresh and lively with soft, lacy acidity lending energy and drive, and the wine flows along a very fine-textured line. The flavours of passionfruit are carried to an elegant, soft, dry finish. This is an elegantly luscious and succulent Sauvignon Blanc with passionfruity flavours and fine, dry textures. Serve with Pacific Rim fare, and salads and vegetables over the next 2 years. Fruit one-third each from the lower Wairau, mid-Wairau and Cowslip Valley, Waihopi, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.0% alc. and 3.9 g/L RS, the wine aged on lees. 17.5+/20 Oct 2015 RRP $22.99
