Clos Henri Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 03-Jan-2017
Bright, pale straw-yellow colour with some depth and green hues on the rim. The nose is very refined and firmly concentrated with penetrating aromas of gooseberries, white stonefruits and white florals, unfolding nuances of fresh herbs. The aromatics are taut and tightly bound, unfolding soft nuances of minerals. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is tight and firmly concentrated with a core of gooseberries and white stonefruits, white florals and chalky minerals. The fruit shows depth, fruit extract, fine body and textural presence, along with a fine line of crisp acidity lending drive and adding to the linearity. The wine carries to a tightly bound, elegantly lingering finish of stonefruits, minerals and herbs. This is a refined, taut and firm Sauvignon Blanc with white stonefruit and gooseberry flavours, mineral notes and plenty of fruit extract and crisp acidity. Serve as an aperitif and with seafood over the next 2-3 years. MS clone fruit from ‘Greywacke’ riverstone soils, vines 8-13 y.o., fermented in stainless-steel with 10% in seasoned French oak barrels to 13.5% alc. and <1.0 g/L RS, the wine aged 8 months on lees with batonnage. Certified BioGro organic. 18.5/20 Jan 2017 RRP $32.00
