Jules Taylor Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 28-Nov-2017
Bright, light straw-yellow colour, lighter on the edge. The nose is elegantly presented with soft and harmoniously presented aromas of passionfruit with notes of gooseberries, cut grass and white florals, along with nuances of minerals. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has tightly bound and concentrated flavours of passionfruit, gooseberries, nettles and mouthwatering minerals. The palate has some phenolic texture and grip with fine, zesty acidity in the background. The wine flows with good linearity to an elegant, dry finish of passionfruit, gooseberries and herbs. This is a taut, well-concentrated Sauvignon Blanc with fresh passionfruit, gooseberry and cut grass flavours on a textured, zesty, dry palate. Match with Pacific Rim fare over the next 2 years. Fruit from Taylors Pass, Awatere Valley, Lower Wairau and Hawkesbury, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.15% alc. and 3.2 g/L RS, the wine aged a short time on lees. 18.0-/20 Nov 2017 RRP $24.99
