Greenhough ‘Hope Vineyard’ Nelson Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 22-Feb-2016
Fruit from the ‘Hope Vineyard’ 70% WBP and 30% given 30 hours skin contact, the wine barrel-fermented in 20% new oak with indigenous yeast to 14.0% alc. Brilliant straw-yellow colour, lighter edged. The nose is rich with deep and complex aromas of spicy greengages, nectarines and gooseberries entwined with nuances of nuts and smoke. This is restrained and stylish in expression. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is tightly concentrated with a core of green stonefruits, spicy gooseberries and nutty oak detail. The palate has good tension and drive with balanced acid freshness and a fine-textured, firm line. The fruit carries to a long, lingering finish of green stonefruits, herbs and smoke. This is stylishly concentrated oak-influenced Sauvignon Blanc with complexing detail and fine-textured linearity. Match with herb-marinated poultry and pork dishes over the next 3+ years. Certified BioGro organic. 18.0+/20 Feb 2016 RRP $28.00
