Kuru Kuru Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 08-Mar-2018
Bright, very pale straw colour with slight green hues, near colourless on the rim. The nose is very fresh and elegant in proportion, with intense, fragrant aromas of white stonefruits and white florals, fresh herbs and subtle notes of nettles, cut-grass and green capsicums. This has finesse and clarity. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has vibrant and lively, refreshingly sweet fruit flavours of gooseberries, passionfruit and notes of cut-grass and nettles, with fresh herb elements. The palate has lusciousness and is smooth-flowing with crisp, lacy acidity providing plenty of energy and tension. The wine has good linearity, carrying to a finely concentrated, long lingering finish. This is a rich and vibrantly fruited Sauvignon Blanc with gooseberry, nettle and herb flavours with brisk acidity and good linearity. Match with shellfish and serve with salads and vegetables over the next 2 years. Fruit from the Awatere Valley cool-fermented to 13.0% alc. and approx. 2 g/L RS. 17.5/20 Mar 2018 RRP $21.95
