Fairbourne Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 15-Jul-2018
Bright, light straw-yellow colour with pale green tints, lighter on the edge. The nose has an elegantly concentrated and taut core of aromatic gooseberries and fragrant white florals with an amalgam of fresh herbs, snow peas, unveiling cooler nettle and mineral notes. The aromatics are refined with a mouthwatering and penetrating intensity. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is sleek and finely concentrated with a heart of gooseberry fruit entwined with fresh herbs, nettles and cut-grass, unfolding white florals and minerals. The palate flows along a fine line with electric tension from the zesty acidity, leading to a lingering finish of gooseberries and nettles. This is a refined and elegantly concentrated Sauvignon Blanc with gooseberry fruit and cool-spectrum notes, white florals and minerals on a racy palate. Serve with seafood and Pacific Rim fare over the next 2-3 years. Fruit from a single north-facing site in the Southern Valleys, cool-fermented in stainless-steel with a small portion in new French oak to 13.0% alc., and 2.4 g/L RS. 18.5-/20 Jul 2018 RRP $34.95
