Lynfer Estate Wairarapa Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 03-Mar-2016
Brilliant, light straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, near colourless on the rim. This has a fresh and intense nose of well-concentrated aromas of gooseberries, cut grass and green capsicums, along with mouthwatering mineral nuances. Pungent passionfruit notes unfold in the glass. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate possesses a tight core of gooseberry and passionfruit flavours along with cut grass and capsicum elements. The mouthfeel is crisp and fresh with racy acidity, and the wine flows along a fine, dry, phenolic line, leading to a dry, grainy finish with good length. This is a tight, passionfruity and grassy Sauvignon Blanc with crisp acidity and a dry phenolic line. Match with seafood, salads and vegetables, and Pacific Rim fare over the next 2 years. Fruit from the Lynfer ‘Dakins Road’ vineyard cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.6% alc. and 1.42 g/L RS. 16.5/20 Mar 2016 RRP $18.00
