Hawksdrift Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 09-Nov-2018
Bright, pale straw colour with light green hues, near colourless on the rim. The nose is very fresh with elegantly concentrated aromas of pungent passionfruit and subtle notes of tropical fruits with fresh herbs, forming a moderately deep core. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is crisp and brisk, with racy, refreshing acidity enlivening the passionfruit flavours and enriching the tropical fruit and herb notes. The fruit forms a tight, firm core and the wine flows along a light-textured phenolic line leading to a light, but lingering finish. This is a crisp and refreshing Sauvignon Blanc with penetrating flavours of passionfruit, tropical fruits and herbs on a light-textured, linear palate. Serve with seafood and Pacific Rim fare over the next 2 years. Fruit from the lower and mid Wairau, in barrel to 12.5% alc. and approx. 3 g/L RS, the wine given extended aging on lees. 17.5/20 Nov 2018 RRP $TBC
