Misha’s Vineyard ‘The Starlet’ Central Otago Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 10-Feb-2018
Bright, pale straw colour with slight green hues. The nose is an stylish amalgam of green stonefruits and nectarines with subtle cool-spectrum nettle notes and a little bean-like secondary development. The nose is elegant in proportion with good concentration and depth. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is refreshing with good depth, weight and fine textures and a rounded heart, showing green stonefruits, citrus fruits, fresh herbs and suggestions of nutty elements, unfolding a little spice. This has fruit richness, balanced acid vitality and presence and the wine carries well to the finish. This is a stylishly concentrated green stonefruited oak-influenced Sauvignon Blanc with green stonefruit and herb flavours and a fine-textured palate. Serve with herb-marinated seafood, poultry and white meats over the next 2-3 years. MS clone fruit, hand-picked and WBP, 75% cool-fermented in stainless-steel and 25% indigenous yeast fermented in seasoned French oak to 14.0% alc. 1,242 dozen made. 18.0-/20 Feb 2018 RRP $27.00
