Mahi Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 16-Apr-2018
Brilliant, pale straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, near colourless on the edge. The nose is elegantly concentrated with a firm core of white stonefruits along with subtle notes of fresh herbs entwined with a complex layer of flinty and mineral lees notes, unfolding a whiff of smoke. The aromatics are thirst-quenching. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a concentrated and well-packed amalgam of white and green stonefruits, along with nuances of gooseberries and herbs, intermixed with a layer of flinty and minerally lees. The fruit is bright, growing in richness and aromatics, along with refreshing acidity providing energy and tension. The wine flows along a very fine, textured line which allows the fruitiness to feature, carrying to a long and sustained, tightly bound finish. This is a concentrated and intense Sauvignon Blanc with rich gooseberry and stonefruit flavours along with a complex flinty and minerally layering of lees, an a taut palate. Serve with seafood and herb-marinated poultry and pork over the next 2+ years. Fruit from 7 different vineyards, hand-picked and WBP, fermented with 22% by indigenous yeasts in stainless-steel, with 7% in seasoned French oak to 13.0% alc. and 2.5 g/L RS. 18.0/20 Apr 2018 RRP $22.90
