Haha Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 09-Mar-2018
Bright, light straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, pale on the edge. The nose is fresh and lively with bright and intense, tightly bound aromas of gooseberries entwined with cooler-spectrum nettle, cut-grass and green capsicum notes, along with mineral nuances and hints of passionfruit. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is very brisk and zesty with racy acidity highlighting the flavours of gooseberries, nettles and cut grass, with white floral lift. Some passionfruit and fresh herb detail adds interest. The fruit is underlined by very fine, dry, thirst-quenching textures and the palate has good linearity leading to a long, nuanced finish. This is a crisp and racy, tightly bound Sauvignon Blanc with cool-spectrum gooseberry, nettle and herb flavours and a thirst-quenching palate. Serve with shellfish and seafood, and salads and vegetables over the next 2 years. Fruit from the Waihopi and Wairau Valleys, cool-fermented in tank to 12.5% alc. and 1.9 g/L RS. 17.0+/20 Mar 2018 RRP $17.99
