Johanneshof Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 15-Nov-2016
Bright, light straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, pale on the rim. This has a light and restrained nose with gentle aromas of gooseberry fruit entwined with passionfruit elements, fresh herbs, white stonefruits and florals and nuances of minerals. Dry to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate has restrained, but harmoniously melded flavours of gooseberries, passionfruit, white florals and stonefruits and fresh herbs. The mouthfeel is refreshing with lacy acidity and the wine follows a soft-textured line, leading to a light gooseberry and herbal finish. This is a harmonious, light-fruited Sauvignon Blanc with flavours of gooseberries, stonefruits and florals on a smooth flowing palate. Match with Asian cuisine over the next 2 years. Fruit from the Middle Wairau, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.0% alc. and 5.8 g/L RS, the wine given some lees contact. 16.5+/20 Nov 2016 RRP $24.00
