Coal Pit Central Otago Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 22-Mar-2018
Light, golden-hued straw-yellow colour with some depth, paler on the rim. The nose is taut and sleek in presentation with edgy cool-spectrum aromas of nettles, cut grass, fresh herbs and green capsicums, along with white florals and mineral nuances. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is tightly bound and slender with a core of nettles, cut-grass, green stonefruits and flavours of fresh herbs. The fruit is in the cool spectrum and unfolds suggestions of green beans. The mouthfeel is brisk and racy with crisp acidity, and the wine flows along a light, grainy-textured phenolic line that carries to a dry, thirst-quenching finish. This is a slender, taut, cool-spectrum Sauvignon Blanc with nettle, cut-grass and herb flavours on a zesty palate with some grip. Serve as an aperitif, with shellfish, and salads and vegetables over the next 2 years. Hand-picked fruit, cool-fermented in stainless-steel with 10% in barrel to 13.0% alc. and 6.0 g/L RS, the barrel portion undergoing batonnage and the tank portion given extended lees contact. 200 dozen made. 16.0+/20 Mar 2018 RRP $24.95
