Dog Point Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 22-Dec-2014
Bright, pale straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, pale on rim. The nose is full and voluminous with full, evenly presented aromas of white stonefruits seamlessly melded with flinty lees and reductive complexities. Subtle herb and green stonefruit elements unfold in the glass. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, tightly bound flavours of white stonefruits, herbs, minerals and flinty lees form a strong core. The flavours open up, softly filling the palate. The mouthfeel is very fine, with a chalky texture and soft acidity, and is thirst-quenchingly dry. This flows smoothly with good drive and energy, carrying through to a long, lingering flinty, lees-influenced finish. This is an elegant but mouthfilling Sauvignon Blanc with complex stonefruit and flinty mineral and lees flavours. Match with herb-marinated seafood, poultry and veal dishes over the next 2-3+ years. Clone UCD1 fruit from 8 vineyard sites, in the Lower Brancott, Renwick, Fairhall, Omaka and Rapaura sub-regions, and is exclusively clone UCD 1, WBP and fermented in stainless-steel with 20% by indigenous yeasts to 13.5% alc. and 2.9 g/L RS,.the wine is aged 2 months on lees. 18.5+/20 Dec 2014 RRP $24.50 Bright, very pale straw with green hues. The nose is aromatic and lifted, with fresh and firm greengage and stonefruit aromas complexed by flinty elements, tropical fruit nuances unfolding. Elegant and tight on palate, fresh and refined green stonefruits, tightly bound with flinty lees, quite racy with sinewy acidity, great linearity and length. 13.5% alc., 2.9 g/L RS. 18.5/20 Oct 2014 RRP$TBA
