Julicher Martinborough Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 28-Oct-2017
Bright, light straw-yellow colour, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is softly full and voluminous with aromas of ripe green stonefruits and gooseberries harmoniously entwined with fresh herbs and mineral elements. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has lively and sweet flavours of ripe green stonefruits along with restrained gooseberry and fresh herb notes. The palate possesses a well-packed, rounded core, and the wine flows along a fine-textured line with slippery, racy acidity. The wine carries gently with some underlying acid tension to a soft, lingering, nuanced finish of green stonefruits. This is a softly concentrated Sauvignon Blanc with stonefruit, gooseberry and herb flavours on a soft-textured palate with gentle, lacy acidity. Match with Mediterranean fare over the next 2 years. Hand-picked fruit from ‘Julicher Estate’, WBP with some skin contact and cool-fermented in tank with 10% indigenous yeast fermented in seasoned French oak to 12.75% alc. and 4.65 g/L RS, with no MLF. 16.5+/20 Oct 2017 RRP 18.00
