Main Divide North Canterbury Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 10-Apr-2018
Brilliant pale straw colour with light lemon-green hues, lighter on the edge. The nose is softly fresh with aromas of cut-grass and nettles, along with gooseberry fruit and subtle notes of tropical fruits and lantana, all lifted by fragrant florals and chalky mineral elements. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is elegant in presentation with intense and penetrating flavours of nettles, cut-grass, gooseberries and tropical fruits, entwines with florals, herbs and minerals. The palate flows with good energy and drive along a fine-textured line with crisp acidity lending zestiness. The flavours carry through to a lingering finish of nettles, herbs and minerals. This is an elegant, intensely flavoured Sauvignon Blanc with nettle, herb, gooseberry and tropical fruit flavours with mineral elements on a fine-textured palate. Serve as an aperitif and with seafood over the next 2 years. North Canterbury fruit cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.5% alc. and dryness, the wine aged on lees. 17.5-/20 Apr 2018 RRP $20.99
