Hunter’s ‘Kaho Roa’ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 24-Apr-2017
Bright pale straw colour with slight green hues. The nose is softly concentrated with a tight core of green stonefruit aromas, showing greengages and nectarines along with subtle notes of dark herbs and nuances of smoke. Medium-bodied, the palate features a well-packed heart of green stonefruits along with tropical fruits, fresh and dark herbs, complexed by nutty oak suggestions and a little smoke. The fruit has richness and lusciousness and is balanced by fresh acidity enlivening the mouthfeel. The wine flows smoothly along a fine-textured line that leads to a very long and sustained finish of green stonefruits, herbs and nuts. This is a softly concentrated oak-influenced Sauvignon Blanc with gently rich green stonefruit and herb flavours with subtle layers of nutty and smoky detail. Serve with herb-marinated white meat dishes over the next 3+ years. The flagship wine for Hunter’s. Fruit from estate Rapaura vineyards, fully indigenous yeast barrel-fermented to 13.0% alc. and 2.42 g/L RS, the wine aged in 5% new barrels with batonnage and no MLF. 18.5-/20 Apr 2017 RRP $24.99
