Gladstone Vineyard Gladstone Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 28-Sep-2012
Fruit from the ‘Boyd', ‘Dakins Road', ‘Carters' and ‘Home' blocks, from vines up to 25 y.o., stainless-steel fermented with a small component in barrel to 12.75% alc. and 1.2 g/L rs, the wine undergoing batonnage. Very pale straw colour with slight green hues, very pale on rim. This has a very fresh, tight and elegant nose, the bouquet pristine and pure with aromas of white florals, limes and apples. Dry to taste, the palate is elegant in proportion, showing tightly bound and subtle flavours of florals, gooseberries and minerals. The palate flows with fine acidity and tension, bringing a delicate liveliness to the mouthfeel. A refined core and palate line leads to a long finish with restrained fruit nuances. A refined and pristine Sauvignon Blanc, this is stylishly subtle, and will be a match with Thai, Vietnamese and Japanese dishes over the next 2-3 years. 17.5+/20 Sep 2012 RRP $25.00
