Dancing Water ‘Tier Garden’ Waipara Sauvignon Blanc 2010

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 20-May-2012
Organically grown fruit from 18 y.o. vines from the ‘Tier Garden' vineyard, hand-picked and fully barrel-fermented in old oak by wild yeasts with high solids to 13.5% alc. The wine was aged 11 months on lees. Bright straw-yellow colour with depth. The bouquet is soft and ethereal with interwoven notes of savoury gooseberries, grass and cut herbs and nuances of smoke and barrel work. Dry and medium-bodied, subtle and restrained fruit flavours of gooseberries, fennel and grass build with intensity and gently fill the palate. The textures are soft and rounded, but there is good freshness from underlying acidity which adds a degree of juiciness. The wine finishes with a gentle blossoming and array of floral and herbal flavours. This is an ethereal and smooth textured Sauvignon Blanc with plenty of nuance. Serve with Asian seafood and vegetable dishes over the next 2-3 years. 17.0+/20 May 2012 RRP $32.00
