Eradus Awatere Valley Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 24-Sep-2012
Brilliant straw-yellow colour with pale green-gold hues. This has a powerful, tightly concentrated and rich nose with an amalgam of gooseberries, grass, herbs and passionfruit with a steely, minerally edge. Dry to taste, concentrated flavours of gooseberries and passionfruit are driven by slippery and racy acidity. The flavours flow smoothly, the palate integrated and harmonious in mouthfeel. This has excellent clarity and purity of expression, showing detailed nuances of grass and minerals, and the wine has a very long and sustained finish with concentrated gooseberry fruit. Sleek and harmonious, this is a concentrated Sauvignon Blanc with flavour detail and minerality. Serve with seafood, vegetables and creamy cheeses over the next 2-3 years. Fruit from the ‘Breloft' vineyard, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.5% alc. and 3.5 g/L rs. 18.0+/20 Sep 2012 RRP $18.99
