Clark Estate Upper Awatere Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 03-Oct-2013
Full, very pale straw-yellow colour, near colourless on rim. The nose is fresh with intense aromas of gooseberry fruit interwoven with cooler spectrum nuances of herbs, nettles, limes and passionfruit. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, fresh and deep fruit flavours of gooseberries and nettles show with blackcurrant leaf and passionfruit. The mouthfeel is dry with a little phenolic texture and a grainy line, but there is freshness and energy to the fruit. The palate leads to a bright, lively and aromatic finish that gently fades to dryness, carried by the acidity. This is a full-flavoured Sauvignon Blanc with cooler gooseberry flavours and a light, textured mouthfeel. Match with seafood and poultry over the next 2 years. Fruit from different blocks in the ‘Clark Estate’ vineyard cool-fermented in tank to 13.2% alc. and 3.2 g/L RS. 16.5+/20 Oct 2013 RRP $20.00
