Johner Estate ‘Single Vineyard’ Gladstone Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 08-Oct-2012
Sauvignon Blanc fruit from the ‘Johner' vineyard fermented to 13.1% alc and 4 g/L rs, the wine aged on lees 3 months, 10% in seasoned 330 L oak barrels. Bright, pale straw-yellow colour with green hues, pale on rim. This has a soft and restrained nose, with tightly bound aromas of white stonefruits and limes, with subtle nuances of herbs, minerals and flinty lees work. Dry to taste, flavours of minerals and gooseberries are presented with restraint, but there is an underlying juiciness enhanced by racy acidity. The palate has good weight and presence, and a fine textural line leading to a dry, moderately long finish with hints of tropical fruit. This is a restrained Sauvignon Blanc with soft, fine textures and good weight. Match with seafood and poultry over the next 2+ years. 17.0/20 Oct 2012 RRP $24.00
