Monowai Hawke’s Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 20-Sep-2017
Bright, pale straw-yellow colour, lighter on the rim. The nose is very light and delicate with fresh aromas of white stonefruits and florals along with subtle nuances of fresh herbs unfolding suggestions of gooseberries and minerals. Dry to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate has a light, taut core with white stonefruits and fresh herbs, and some mineral notes. Flavours of gooseberries unfold, and the palate is enlivened by crisp, dry acidity. The mouthfeel is tight with a light core and some phenolic textures that carry the wine to a light, dry, thirst-quenching finish. This is a delicately flavoured, thirst-quenching Sauvignon Blanc with herb, mineral and gooseberry notes on a textured, refreshing palate. Match with salads and vegetables, and seafood over the next 2 years. Fruit from the ‘Monowai’ vineyard, tank-fermented to 12.0% alc. the wine aged 6 weeks on lees with batonnage. 15.5/20 Sep 2017 RRP $18.00
