Left Field Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 09-Mar-2015
Bright, very pale straw colour with green hues, lighter on rim. The nose is very tightly bound, elegantly penetrating with precise cool-spectrum aromas of cut grass, nettles and fresh herbs, along with thirst-quenching minerally notes. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, tightly concentrated grass and nettle fruit flavours combine with gooseberry and minerally elements to form a fine-textured core. Balanced lacy acidity enlivens the mouthfeel and adds to the fruit sweetness, and the wine flows with good vitality to a lush and juicy grassy finish with good length. This is an elegant, tightly bound cool-spectrum, classical Awatere Sauvignon Blanc with a juicy finish. Serve with seafood, salads and vegetables and Pacific Rim fare over the next 2 years. The label features the ‘Flying Squidmill’. Fruit from the Awatere Valley cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.5% alc. and 2.8 g/L RS. 17.0+/20 Mar 2015 RRP $17.99
