Eradus Awatere Valley Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 16-Sep-2013
Bright, very pale straw-yellow colour, lighter on rim. This has an elegant and well-concentrated and proportioned bouquet with a tightly bound amalgam of passionfruit and gooseberry fruit aromas along with grass and nettle nuances. Wet stone, mineral and lifted floral elements emerge in the glass. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is refined and firmly bound with smooth-flowing and seamless flavours of passionfruit intermixed with gooseberries. This has a concentrated core and linearity with subtle sweetness and richness which is enhanced by lively, lacy acidity. The wine has finesse and balance which is carried through to a tight, lingering finish of passionfruit and minerals. This is a tightly bound and refined Sauvignon Blanc with the concentration to develop over the next 2-3 years. Serve as an aperitif, with salads and vegetables and seafood. Fruit from the ‘Breloft’ vineyard, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.7% alc. and 3.0 g/L RS. 18.0+/20 Sep 2013 RRP $18.99
