Mahi ‘Boundary Farm’ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 11-Dec-2018
Bright straw-yellow colour with green-gold hues, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is finely concentrated with a firm and well-packed core with an amalgam of white and green stonefruits and subtle notes of dark and fresh herbs, along with integrated flinty and minerally reductive complexities. Piquant greengage and nectarine nuances emerge with aeration. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate possesses a degree of elegance in its proportions, with very good depth and tightly bound and intense flavours of sweet, green stonefruits and herbs. The fruit is complexed by a subtle layer of flint and minerals which adds detail. The mouthfeel is fresh and lively with bright acidity, and the wine carries with excellent linearity to a long, taut finish. This is a finely concentrated, intense and complex oak-influenced Sauvignon Blanc with stonefruit, herb and flinty, mineral notes on a fresh and fine-textured, linear palate. Serve with herb-marinated seafood, poultry, pork and veal over the next 3-4 years. Hand-picked fruit from the Gilbert’s ‘Boundary Farm’ vineyard, on the south-east edge of Blenheim, WBP direct to barrel and indigenous yeast fermented to 14.7% alc. and 2.2 g/L RS, the wine aged 11 months in seasoned oak, mainly 1 and 2 y.o., undergoing batonnage and 20% MLF. 18.5+/20 Dec 2018 RRP $29.90
