Goldwater Wairau Valley Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 04-Nov-2017
Bright, pale straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, very pale on the rim. The nose is softly concentrated with deep aromas of pungent passionfruit along with tropical fruit, gooseberries and fragrant fresh herbs and snow peas. The nose opens gently with good volume on aeration. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has softly sweet and vibrant, mouthfilling flavours of passionfruit, tropical fruit and gooseberries with nuances of fresh herbs. The palate has soft and fine textures with bright acidity providing a mouthwatering mouthfeel. The passionfruit flavours blossom and carry with good breadth to a long and full finish. This is a sweetly rich and vibrant, mouthfilling, passionfruity Sauvignon Blanc with good breadth, soft textures and brisk, mouthwatering acidity. Serve with Pacific Rim fare over the next 2 years. 100% Wairau Valley fruit, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.5% alc. and 3.5 g/L RS. 18.0+/20 Nov 2017 RRP $21.00 Very pale straw colour with slight green hues, lighter on the edge. The nose is tightly bound, but shows a fine and slender, but very concentrated core with pungent passionfruit at the heart. This has firmness, but also finesse, and reveals mineral notes with aeration. Dry to taste, the palate is taut and slender in proportion, but shows richness at the core, with pungent passionfruit flavours the feature. This is vibrant, driven and shows excellent tight linearity and very fine phenolic textures. The palate is zesty through its length and finish. This has the potential to develop with classical elegance, in the passionfruity spectrum over the next 2+ years. All Wairau Valley fruit, with a high proportion of Rapaura material. 12.5% alc. 18.0-/20 Aug 2017 RRP $18.00
