Misha’s Vineyard ‘The Starlet’ Central Otago Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 04-Dec-2018
Bright, very pale straw-yellow colour, pale on the rim. The nose is fresh and firm with taut aromas of gooseberry fruit entwined with subtle notes of fresh herbs and nettles, and a delicate layer of green stonefruit detail unfolding suggestions of nuts and minerals. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has a well-concentrated core with tightly bound flavours of gooseberries and green stonefruits along with subtle cool-spectrum nettle elements. The palate is refreshing with lacy acidity and the wine flows along a fine-textured line, leading to an elegant, herb-nuanced finish. This is a finely concentrated oak-influenced Sauvignon Blanc with gooseberry, stonefruit and nettle flavours with fresh acidity and an elegant, flowing palate. Serve with salads and vegetables, and herb-marinated white meat dishes over the next 3 years. MS clone fruit, hand-picked and WBP, 70% cool-fermented in stainless-steel, and 30% indigenous yeast fermented in seasoned French oak to 13.5% alc. 17.5-/20 Dec 2018 RRP $27.00
