Maui Waipara Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 03-Dec-2018
Bright, very pale straw colour, near colourless on the rim. The nose is soft and rounded in presentation with aromas of ripe tropical fruit with notes of passionfruit and fresh herbs. The aromatics are a little restrained, but harmonious and showing moderate depth. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has sweetly ripe flavours of tropical fruits and passionfruit with ripe yellow stonefruits and herbal notes forming a rounded core and heart. The mouthfeel is soft with the palate possessing a very fine-textured line, with gently refreshing acidity providing some drive. The fruit sweetness carries to a moderately long finish. This is a soft and rounded, gently ripe, tropical fruited Sauvignon Blanc with fine textures and restrained acidity. Match with Asian fare over the next 2 years. Fruit from the ‘Waiata’ vineyard, cool-fermented in tank to 12.5% alc. and 5.1 g/L RS. 17.0/20 Dec 2018 RRP $18.99
