Main Divide North Canterbury Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 08-Aug-2018
Brilliant, very pale straw colour with slight green hues, near colourless on the edge. The nose is firm with a finely concentrated heart with an amalgam of gooseberries, passionfruit, green stonefruits and fresh herbs, unfolding white florals and a little nutty lees detail. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a bright, vibrant and lively core of gooseberries harmoniously melded with passionfruit, greengages and nectarines, unfolding nutty nuances. The fruit is enlivened by fresh acidity and the wine has good drive and linearity, flowing along a smooth-textured line leading to a lingering finish. This is a fresh and vibrant Sauvignon Blanc with flavours of gooseberries, passionfruit and green stonefruit on a lively palate with linearity. Match with salads and vegetables, and Mediterranean fare over the next 2 years. North Canterbury fruit cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.5% alc., the wine aged for a short time on lees. 17.5+/20 Aug 2018 RRP $20.99
