Gladstone Vineyard Gladstone Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 23-Nov-2015
Full, even, light straw-yellow colour with lemon-green hues, lighter on edge. The nose is softly full, up-front and open with easy aromas of ripe gooseberries, tropical fruits and harmoniously interwoven savoury herbal elements. Some lifted floral and grassy elements emerge with a gentle, thirst quenching hint of minerals. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is soft, open and accessible with light flavours of green stonefruits, tropical fruits and herbs. The mouthfeel is rounded and smooth-flowing and follows a subtle textural line, enlivened by light, lacy acidity. The acidity carries the flavours to a lingering brisk, dry finish. This is a light, accessible Sauvignon Blanc with gooseberry and tropical fruit flavours and an easy flowing palate. Serve with Pacific Rim and Asian fare over the next 2 years. Fruit from the ‘Carters’, ‘Dakins Road’ and ‘Home’ blocks, the hand-picked portion WBP and the machine-harvested portion given skin contact, and fermented in stainless-steel, with 10% in barrels, to 13.0% alc. and 1.6 g/L RS, the wine aged on lees with batonnage. 16.5/20 Nov 2015 RRP $25.00
