Dashwood Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 05-Nov-2017
Bright, very pale straw colour with slight green hues, near colourless on the edge. The nose is softly fresh with elegantly concentrated aromas of passionfruit and tropical fruits, along with subtle notes of fresh herbs and nettle elements. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has fresh, bright and lively flavours of passionfruit and tropical fruit with fresh herbs, nettles and cut grass flavours. The mouthfeel is brisk with fresh acidity enhancing the cut. The wine flows with good drive along a fine-textured line, leading to a lingering finish of passionfruit, nettles and cut grass. This is a bright and vibrant Sauvignon Blanc with flavours of passionfruit, nettles and cut grass on a crisp and lively palate with good linearity. Serve with salads and vegetables, and Mediterranean fare over the next 2 years. A blend of 60% Awatere Valley and 40% Wairau Valley fruit, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.5% alc. and 4.25 g/L RS. 17.5/20 Nov 2017 RRP $15.00 Brilliant, pale straw-yellow with green hues. This has a full, upfront and softly packed, but very accessible nose of ripe tropical fruits, in the refreshing cooler spectrum, with notes of fresh herbs and snow peas, and a little thiol passionfruit, all harmonious and quite complete in expression. Dry to taste, this is bright and lively on the palate with sweet fruit flavours, hinting luscious, with passionfruit and gooseberries, unfolding nettle and cut grass notes. The flavours are presented with lovely balance and harmony, quite up-front and totally accessible. The phenolic handling is very fine, and zesty acidity carries the flavours to a positive finish. This has it all here, and drinking well already. A blend of 60% Awatere and 40% Wairau fruit. 12.5% alc. 17.5/20 Aug 2017 RRP $15.00
