Hunter’s Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 24-Apr-2017
Bright, very pale straw colour with slight green hues, near colourless on the rim. The nose is full, up-front and accessible with passionfruit and tropical fruit aromas lifted by ethereal fresh and dark herb notes. The aromatics unveil a thirst-quenching, steely and minerally core with aeration. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is finely concentrated and tightly bound with flavours of passionfruit and tropical fruits entwined with fresh herbs and steely mineral notes. The mouthfeel has plenty of energy and acid brightness, and the wine flows along a smooth line, leading to a dry, chalky, minerally finish. This is a taut and concentrated, refreshingly steely Sauvignon Blanc with intense passionfruit, tropical fruit, herb and mineral flavours. Serve with Pacific Rim fare over the next 2+ years. Fruit from multiple sites in the Wairau Valley, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.0% alc. and 1.06 g/L RS, the wine aged 5 months on lees. 18.0+/20 Apr 2017 RRP $21.99
