Johner Estate Gladstone ‘Noble’ Sauvignon Blanc 2009

Sweet Wine from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 01-Mar-2011
Bright straw-yellow with light golden hues, this has an excellent lifted bouquet of ripe, honeyed gooseberries, savoury passionfruit and lime marmalade, showing true varietal Sauvignon character with botrytis influence. The volatility is in style and adds to the exoticism. Intensely sweet, rich and lush, the wine features elevated levels of acidity, but the concentration of marmalade, gooseberry, tropical fruits and honey is clear and has great line and length throughout the palate. A liqueur style with racy acidity, this is smooth and slippery with it. Made from botrytis-affected fruit fermented to 8.8% alc. and 179 g/L rs. Sip slowly with the wine well-chilled. Keep for 4-5 years. (375 ml) 18.0+/20 Mar 2011 RRP $22.00
