Invivo ‘Organic’ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 27-Jan-2016
Bright, pale straw-yellow colour, lighter on the rim. The nose is full and well-concentrated with harmoniously melded aromas of gooseberries and greengages and nectarines, with nutty elements at the core. Soft herb, floral and lanolin elements are present, unfolding nuances of flint and minerals with aeration. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the flavours of green stonefruits, herbs, gooseberries and lanolin are very tightly bound and restrained in expression, but form an elegant core and line. The mouthfeel flows well, being smooth in texture with slippery acidity. The wine carries to a light, soft-textured, dry finish. This is a youthfully tight, oak-influenced Sauvignon Blanc with a smooth flowing, slippery, dry palate. It will develop over the next 3 years. Serve with Pacific Rim fare and salads and vegetables. Fruit from the Linklater’s certified organic ‘Windrush’ and ‘Terrace Stone’ vineyards, Renwick, 50% fermented in large and small oak barrels to 13.1% alc. and 2.9 g/L RS, the wine aged in barrel. 17.0+/20 Jan 2016 RRP $18.99
