Grove Mill Wairau Valley Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 28-Nov-2018
Bright, very pale straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, lighter on the rim. The nose is softly full and voluminous with well-packed layers of pungent passionfruit and tropical fruit with notes of fresh herbs, snow peas and capsicums. This has plenty of aromatic presence and weight. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has sweetly rich, pungent flavours of passionfruit and tropical fruit along with fresh herbs and snow peas forming a rich, concentrated and rounded heart. The fruit sweetness is enlivened by fresh, lacy acidity, and the wine flows along a very fine-textured line leading to a long and sustained finish of passionfruit and tropical fruit. This is a sweetly rich-fruited Sauvignon Blanc with pungent passionfruit, tropical fruit and herb flavours with enlivening acidity and a fine line. Serve with Pacific Rim fare over the next 2 years. Fruit from the lower Wairau including the ’17 Valley’ vineyard, vines on average 18 y.o., cool-fermented with inoculated and indigenous yeasts in stainless-steel with 5% in French oak with solids to 13.0% alc. and 3.4 g/L RS, the wine aged 3 months on lees. 18.5+/20 Nov 2018 RRP $20.00
