Mahi Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 21-Mar-2013
Bright, pale straw colour, pale on rim. The nose is very refined and elegant with ethereal aromas of gooseberry fruit along with subtle hints of fresh herbs, minerals and a suggestion of smoke. The bouquet has detail that builds in intensity in the glass. Dry to taste, gentle, restrained and nuanced flavours of gooseberries, herbs, limes and minerals flow easily on a soft, finely textured palate. The acidity is lacy and mouthwatering in freshness, enlivening the flavour interest. The flavours are carried to a very long, lingering thirst-quenching finish. This is a subtly-flavoured and soft-textured Sauvignon Blanc with a lacy, mouthwatering palate. Serve with seafood, salads and vegetables over the next 2+ years. Fruit from 9 sites, partially hand-picked and WBP, with 12% fermented in seasoned French oak, and 10% with indigenous yeasts to 13.2% alc. and 2.1 g/L rs. 18.0+/20 Mar 2013 RRP $19.00
