Mahi ‘Boundary Farm’ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2011

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 21-Mar-2013
Fruit from the ‘Gilbert’ vineyard on the southern boundary of Blenheim township at the foot of the Wither Hills, hand-picked and WBP, fermented in seasoned French oak barriques with indigenous yeasts to 14.0% alc. and 1.9 g/L rs, the wine aged on lees in barrel for 11 months. Brilliant straw-yellow colour with faint golden hues, pale edged. This has a full, soft nose with gentle aromas of savoury, ripe gooseberry and greengage fruit that have good depth and density. Delicate smoke and nutty notes from barrel work and wild yeast provide interest. Dry to taste and fullish-bodied, savoury yellow stonefruit, gooseberries, sour greengages, fresh herbs and nuts form an array of flavours on palate. The mouthfeel is soft, the acidity restrained, with a fine textural thread providing linearity that carries the flavours to a moderately sustained finish with some acid liveliness appearing. This is a restrained, finely textured Sauvignon Blanc with an melange of savoury fruit flavours. Serve with Mediterranean fare over the next 3+ years. 18.0-/20 Mar 2013 RRP $29.00
