Fairbourne Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 03-Jun-2015
Bright, very pale straw-green, near colourless on the edge. This has a very elegant, tightly bound and refined nose with delicate aromas of white florals along with subtle, piquant herb, green stonefruit and gooseberry nuances. The fruit is poised and entwined with thirst-quenching, chalky mineral notes. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is refined and elegant in proportion with tightly bound, delicate and pure flavours of white florals, herbs and gooseberry fruit. The palate shows fruit succulence, balanced by lacy, refreshing acidity and mouthwatering minerality, along with a thread of phenolics. The smooth and refined texture, and the acidity carry the wine to a very long, lingering, minerally finish. This is a refined and delicate Sauvignon Blanc with thirst-quenching minerality. Serve as an aperitif and with seafood over the next 3+ years. Hand-picked fruit from a single north-facing hillside vineyard on ancient alluvial and clay gravels in the Southern Valleys, cool-fermented in stainless-steel with a small portion in new French oak to 13.5% alc. and <1 g/L RS, and TA 7.3 g/L. 18.5-/20 May 2015 RRP $34.95
