Koha Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 15-Nov-2018
Bright, very pale straw colour, near colourless on the rim. The nose is fresh with soft and light aromas of passionfruit, tropical fruits and herbs with a hint of blackcurrant leaf. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is slender with flavours of passionfruit, nettles, cut-grass and green capsicums. The mouthfeel is refreshing with lacy acidity and the wine flows along a light-textured phenolic line that carries to a moderately long, dry finish. This is a slender Sauvignon Blanc with light passionfruit flavours with nettle and cut-grass notes on a textured palate with fresh acidity. Serve with seafood, salads and vegetables over the next 2 years. Fruit 65% from the Redwood Hills, Awatere and 35% from the ’Home’ vineyard, Wairau Bar, cool-fermented in tank with 5% of hand-picked fruit from the ’Hillside’ block in the Awatere WBP to barrel for indigenous yeast fermentation and 3 months aging on lees; the wine is 13.0% alc. and 3.5 g/L RS. 16.0/20 Nov 2018 RRP $18.99
