Green Glow Hawke’s Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 22-Nov-2015
Moderately deep, light golden-yellow colour with lemon-straw-hues on the rim. The nose is full and voluminous, but stylishly restrained in expression with aromas of green and white stonefruits, nutty elements, leaf and stalk suggestions, herbs and florals, and savoury nutty and mineral suggestions The aromatics build in intensity and are seamless in intensity, revealing ethereal detail. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the flavours of green stonefruits, herbs and florals are restrained, gently unveiling leaf, stalk and herb notes. This has a very fine-grained structure and phenolic line, with balancing, crisp, refreshing acidity. This has subtle richness and sweetness, and nutty, leafy and chalky mineral elements emerge and are carried to an elegant, dry and stylish finish with good length. This is an elegantly concentrated, fine-textured Sauvignon Blanc with freshness and restraint. Serve with seafood, salads and vegetables over the next 3+ years. Hand-picked, organically grown fruit from the eastern section of The Supernatural vineyard, indigenous yeast cool-fermented in tank on skins for two weeks to 13.6% alc. and dryness, the wine aged 6 months on lees. 336 dozen made. 18.0-/20 Nov 2015 RRP $40.00
