Clearwater Cove Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 27-Aug-2018
Bright, pale straw colour with slight green hues, lighter on the rim. The nose is bright and fresh with vibrant aromas of passionfruit and sweet tropical fruit, fresh herbs and snow peas. The aromatics form a rounded, soft and elegant core unfolding notes of nettles and cut grass. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a firm core of passionfruit, fresh herbs, cut-grass and nettles. The fruit carries along a taut, phenolic-textured line with some drying grip, with background acidity keeping the palate fresh and mouthwatering. The flavours carry to a lingering, textured finish. This is a bright and vibrant passionfruited Sauvignon Blanc with nettle and cut grass notes on a palate with some grip and dry textures. Serve as an aperitif, with seafood and Pacific Rim fare over the next 2 years. Marlborough fruit cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.5% alc. 16.0+/20 Aug 2018 RRP $12.99
