Mahi Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 31-May-2017
Bright, pale straw-yellow colour with slight lemon-green hues. The nose is fresh with tightly bound aromas of ripe gooseberries and hints of passionfruit, along with stonefruits, white florals and chalky mineral notes. This has good depth and intensity. Medium-full bodied, the palate is bright and vibrant with stylishly concentrated flavours of gooseberries, green stonefruits and passionfruit, with notes of herbs and chalky minerals. The fruit is enlivened by the fresh acidity and the wine flows along a fine, phenolic textured, mouthwatering line with good drive and energy. The wine carries to a long, lingering, dry and chalky finish. This is a finely concentrated Sauvignon Blanc with stylish gooseberry, stonefruit and passionfruit flavours on a chalky, minerally, fine-textured, refreshing palate. Serve with salads and vegetables, herb-marinated seafood and poultry, and Mediterranean fare over the next 2+ years. Fruit from 6 vineyard sites, hand-picked and WBP, fermented in tank with 12% in seasoned French oak by indigenous yeasts, to 13.5% alc. and <1.0 g/L RS, the wine aged 10 months on lees. 18.0+/20 May 2017 RRP $22.90
