Martinborough Vineyard Martinborough Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 02-Jun-2018
Brilliant, light straw-yellow colour, pale on the rim. The nose has softly fresh aromas of gooseberries and green stonefruits, showing greengages and nectarines along with snow peas and herbs. This has poise and subtle mineral elements. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has restrained flavours with a rounded, deep core of green stonefruits with gooseberries and herbs. The fruit has good richness, and the mouthfeel is enlivened by fresh, zesty acidity. The fruit forms a light-textured core and line, and the wine carries to a slightly grippy, textural finish. This is a moderately concentrated oak-influenced Sauvignon Blanc with gooseberry and green stonefruit flavours with some richness, texture and crispness. Match with herb-marinated seafood and white meat dishes over the next 3 years. Fruit from the Martinborough Terrace, cool-fermented in stainless-steel with 10% in seasoned French oak to 12.5% alc. and 3.38 g/L RS, the oaked portion aged 4 months in barrel. 18.0/20 Jun 2018 RRP $20.00
