Hunter’s Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 03-Oct-2017
Bright, very pale straw colour with slight green hues, near colourless on the rim. The nose is soft and gently voluminous with moderate depth of pungent passionfruit and subtle gooseberry fruit aromas, unfolding fragrant white florals and fresh herb notes. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has bright and lively, thirst-quenching flavours of pungent passionfruit and gooseberries with notes of fresh herbs and florals. The mouthfeel is zesty with brisk acidity, and the palate has soft phenolic textures that carry the fruit flavours to a lingering, soft finish. This is a gently voluminous Sauvignon Blanc with pungent passionfruit and fragrant gooseberry flavours, lifted by floral and herb notes on a brisk palate with soft textures. Serve with Pacific Rim fare over the next 2 years. Fruit from the Wairau Valley, the juice cloudy with solids fermented partially with indigenous yeasts in stainless-steel and 5% in French oak puncheons to 12.0% alc. and 0.86 g/L RS, the wine aged on lees. 18.0/20 Oct 2017 RRP $21.99
