Kingfisher Bay Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc Bubbles 2011

Sparkling Wine from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 17-May-2012
Bright, pale straw-green colour, pale on edge, with a fine bead that soon dissipates. This has a softly full nose of uncomplicated gooseberry fruit with some passionfruit aromas. Off-dry and light-bodied, this is soft and gentle with restrained gooseberry, lime and apple confectionary flavours. Good effervescence lifts the fruit aromatic characters and provides a soft, attractively frothy and lively mouthfeel, the acidity adding to the freshness on the palate. The wine finishes with upfront gooseberry and tropical fruit notes. This is a light, gently refreshing and fruited sparkling Sauvignon Blanc to serve as an aperitif and with antipasto, salads and vegetables over the next 18 months to 2 years. A carbonated wine. Marlborough fruit cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.0% alc. and 6.6 g/L rs. 16.0+/20 May 2012 RRP $18.50
