Mahi ‘Boundary Farm’ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2010

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 07-Dec-2011
Fruit from the north-facing ‘Gilbert' clay-soiled vineyard on the Wither Hills. Hand-picked and WBP, fully fermented in French oak barriques with indigenous yeasts to 14.5% alc., then aged 11 months in these barrels. Brilliant straw-yellow colour with depth, pale on rim. The bouquet is tight and powerfully concentrated, but well-proportioned, with ripe nectarine, gooseberry, herb and spice aromas forming a complex amalgam. The nose is reminiscent of quality white Bordeaux. Dry and finely expressed, the palate has layers of complex flavours of ripe stonefuits, gooseberries, herbs and nettles, with mineral notes all interwoven. A fine textural thread and balanced acidity provide real tension and energy and lead to a bright, lively finish that is racy and lacy. This is a complex and detailed wine to serve with grilled seafood, poultry and pork dishes over the next 3-4+ years. 18.5+/20 Dec 2011 RRP $29.00
