Matahiwi Wairarapa Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 14-Jun-2017
Bright, pale straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, lighter on the rim. This has a softly full nose with aromas of green stonefruits and savoury tropical fruits entwined with cut grass and fresh herbs, unfolding waxy and mineral elements. Dry to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate has moderately intense flavours of green stonefruits, cut grass, tropical fruits and herbs with mineral suggestions. The mouthfeel is crisp and zesty with brisk acidity, and the wine flows along a soft-textured phenolic line, leading to a light thirst-quenching finish with flavours of gooseberries, herbs and cut grass. This is a moderately intense, mouthwatering Sauvignon Blanc with stonefruit, herb, cut grass and tropical fruit flavours on a soft-textured, but zesty palate. Match with Mediterranean and Pacific Rim fare over the next 2 years. Fruit from the home vineyard at Opaki as well as from the ‘Hillview’ site in Martinborough, cool-fermented in tank to 12.5% alc. 17.5-/20 Jun 2017 RRP $19.99
