Clark Estate Upper Awatere Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 04-Oct-2018
Bright, light straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, paler edged. The nose is taut and tightly bound, somewhat slender in proportion but with intense aromas of cool-spectrum cut-grass and nettle notes, with herbs and green capsicums. Some white floral notes unfold and intermingle with the herbaceous fruit. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is elegant and slender in proportion, but showing deep and intense flavours in the cool-spectrum with cut-grass, nettles and herbaceous green capsicums and stalky elements. The palate has balanced acidity and the wine carries along a light-textured, refreshing line leading to a grassy and herbal finish. This is a slender and taut, cool-spectrum Sauvignon Blanc with herbaceous cut-grass and nettle flavours on a palate with balanced acidity and texture. Serve with shellfish and Mediterranean fare over the next 2 years. Fruit from the upper Awatere, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.7% alc. and 1.5 g/L RS, the wine aged 3 months on lees. 16.5-/20 Oct 2018 RRP $21.00
