Edgehill Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 10-Jul-2013
Fruit from a vineyard at the end of Fairbourne Drive in the Southern Valleys, with clay gravel soils, fermented to 13.5% alc. and 1.75 g/L rs, the wine aged on lees and given French oak maturation. Bright, pale straw colour with slight green hues, pale edged. This has a very fine and elegant nose, quite tightly bound, with delicate aromas of gooseberries, herbs and nettles, along with wet stones, and hints of smoke. Dry to taste, the palate is also tightly bound, but shows positively succulent and lush fruit flavours of gooseberries and herbs, unfolding to reveal tropical fruit elements. The acidity is lively, providing great tension and energy to the mouthfeel, and very fine textures provide linearity. Flavours of gooseberries, nettles, minerals and flint form a very long and sustained, dry finish. This is an elegant and tightly bound Sauvignon Blanc with fine, succulent fruit flavours. Serve with Mediterranean fare, and with goats cheese over the next 2-3 years. 18.0+/20 Jul 2013 RRP $24.95
