Man O’ War Waiheke Island Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 18-Apr-2017
Bright pale straw yellow colour with slight green hues, lighter on the rim. The nose is fresh and softly packed with ripe gooseberry and tropical fruit aromas along with green tonefruits, lantana, soft grassy notes and fresh herbs. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has an elegantly concentrated core with flavours of gooseberries, cut grass, green stonefruits, along with waxy, nutty and smoky suggestions adding interest. The mouthfeel is refreshing, zesty and bright, with lively acidity, and the wine flows along a fine-textured line, leading to a sustained, dry finish of gooseberries, cut grass and herbs. This is a bright and lively Sauvignon Blanc with fresh gooseberry, cut grass and green stonefruit flavours on a fine, textural palate. Match with salads and vegetables, and Mediterranean fare over the next 2-3 years. Sauvignon Blanc fruit tank-fermented with 30% in barrel with indigenous yeasts to 12.5% alc., the barrel portion aged 9 months on gross lees. 17.5-/20 Apr 2017 RRP $24.90
