Mahi Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2011

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 07-Dec-2011
Bright, very light straw colour with faint green hues, pale on edge. This has a softly fresh and elegant nose with ripe gooseberry fruit, hints of tropical and minerals, forming a concentrated core to the bouquet. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, this is crisp and tightly bound, with flavours of ripe gooseberries, herbs and minerals along with subtle notes of passionfruit showing. The textures are very fine and along with crisp acidity give line and length to the palate. This is an elegant and restrained style with the structure to match antipasto, tapas and most seafood dishes over the next 2-3 years. Fruit from five sites from the western Wairau, with the inclusion of fruit from Ward, approx.. 12% barrel-fermented and some wild yeast fermentation to 13.5% alc. 17.5+/20 Dec 2011 RRP $19.00
