Clearwater Cove Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 12-Nov-2017
Bright, very pale straw colour with slight green hues, pale on edge. The nose is fresh with good volume and depth of passionfruit, tropical fruit, herb and nettle aromas. This is bright and vibrant with good depth and intensity. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a good core of passionfruit, herb and nettle flavours, in the cooler spectrum. The palate is crisp and lively with bright acidity, and the wine flows along a light, phenolic-textured line which lends a dry, thirst-quenching mouthfeel. The flavours carry through to a light, nuanced finish of passionfruit and herbs. This is a crisp and bright passionfruited and herbal Sauvignon Blanc with a thirst-quenching palate. Match with salads and vegetables or Pacific Rim fare over the next 2 years. 60% Wairau and 40% Awatere Valley fruit, cool-fermented to 12.5% alc. and 3.7 g/L RS. 17.0+/20 Nov 2017 RRP $13.95
