Greywacke Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 30-May-2014
Bright, pale straw-yellow colour with light green hues, lighter on edge. The nose is softly concentrated with enticingly exotic, lifted aromas of ripe yellow and green stonefruits, floral, herbs and esters, with subtle complexing, flinty lees and smoky detail. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, a softly integrated, aromatic fruit amalgam features on the front palate with tropical fruits and herbal flavours. The fruit gives way to very fine and soft textures which build and guide the palate, flowing smoothly and with positive drive. Discreet acidity and tension combine with the chalky minerality to carry the wine to a very long, dry, textural and softly mouthwatering finish. This is a softly presented, subtly exotic Sauvignon Blanc with a beautifully refined, textural mouthfeel. Match with Asian cuisine and herb-marinated white meat dishes over the next 2 years. Fruit from the Southern Valleys and the Woodbourne, Renwick and Rapaura districts of the central Wairau Plains, predominantly machine-picked and cool-fermented in tank with a smaller portion in old French oak barriques by indigenous yeasts to 13.7% alc., the wine aged on lees. 18.5/20 May 2014 RRP $26.95
