Main Divide Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 09-May-2017
Bright, very pale straw colour with slight green hues, lighter on the rim. The nose is fresh and full with aromas of pungent passionfruit, gooseberries and fresh herbs entwined with notes of nettles and cut grass, showing classical Awatere expression. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate is crisp, zesty and bright with aromatic flavours of passionfruit and gooseberries along with notes of cut grass and nettles. The mouthfeel is vibrant and thirst-quenching, with racy acidity, and the wine flows with good energy along a fine-textured line, leading to a lingering finish of tropical fruits, nettles and herbs. This is a refreshing, mouthwatering Sauvignon Blanc with passionfruit, gooseberry, cut grass and herb flavours on a racy palate. Serve with seafood, salads and vegetables over the next 2 years. Awatere Valley fruit cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.5% alc., and dryness, the wine aged a short period on lees. 17.5/20 May 2017 RRP $20.99
