Fernhook Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 08-May-2014
Bright, pale straw-yellow colour with lemon-green hues, pale on rim. The nose is fresh and punchy with tightly bound aromas of fresh grass and nettles, along with steely mineral notes and a white floral lift. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, well-concentrated and up-front flavours of grassy fruit show with fresh acid bite and a light, phenolic, grainy line. The mouthfeel is dry with strong drive, revealing gooseberry elements that combine with the grassy, nettle-like elements on the dry, lingering finish. This is a brash and punchy Sauvignon Blanc with a good grassy-fruited core. Serve with seafood and herb-marinated poultry dishes over the next 2 years. Fruit from hillside vineyards in the Fairhall district of the Southern Valleys, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.0% alc. and 2.2 g/L RS. 17.5-/20 May 2014 RRP $16.95
