Fairbourne Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2009

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 21-Jul-2011
Brilliant straw-yellow colour with pale green hues and a pale edge. This has an elegantly fine and subtly expressed nose of white stonefruits and florals with some ethereal herb notes, and flinty reduction nuances. Dry, with good weight and vinous presence on the palate, this has delicate flavours of stonefruits and minerals, enlivened by fresh, balanced acidity. The wine has a very fine, soft texture which allows a gentle sweetness emerge on the finish. Fruit from the north-facing, clay-Gravel soiled ‘Skyedale' vineyard in the Wairau Valley. Cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.0% alc. This restrained and delicate Loire-like Sauvignon will be a match with Japanese, Vietnamese and Thai cuisine over the next 3-5 years. 18.0+/20 Jul 2011 RRP $35.00
