Mahi Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2010

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 13-Apr-2011
Very pale straw-yellow colour with green hues, this is very youthful in appearance. The nose is very fine, tightly constructed with excellent concentration. English gooseberries, herbs, stonefruits and limes show with a hint of smokiness. Dry to taste, the palate is densely packed with flavours of blackcurrants, herbs and stonefruits, that need another year to open up fully. This is supported by mouthwatering acidity; that enlivens the weight and fine textures. The wine is still an infant, but shows real potential to develop and become considerably richer over the next 3-4 years. Fruit from three sites, partially barrel-fermented with indigenous yeasts to dryness and 13.5% alc. Serve with firm flesh fish, poultry and semi-firm cheeses. 18.5-/20 Apr 2011 RRP $19.95
