Mount Brown ‘Grand Reserve’ Waipara Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 18-Oct-2015
Bright, very pale straw-yellow colour, light on edge. The nose is well-concentrated with powerful and tightly bound aromas of white and green stonefruits, nectarines and greengages, along with savoury passionfruit notes and herbs, entwined with subtly complexing spicy, nutty oak, smoke and mineral nuances. Medium-bodied, the fruit flavours of greengages and green stonefruits, herbs and spices are melded with nutty oak. This has some richness and sweetness, and the palate has depth and good concentration and an integrated textural thread. The mouthfeel features lively, lacy acidity and the wine is slippery and thirst-quenching in flow, leading to a long and concentrated, refreshing finish. This is a concentrated oak-influenced Sauvignon Blanc with a lively and refreshing palate. Serve with herb-marinated seafood, poultry and pork dishes over the next 3+ years. Fruit from 6 selected rows, fermented in barrique to 12.0% alc. and 5 g/L RS, the wine aged 4 months in 1 y.o. oak. 98 cases made. 18.5-/20 Oct 2015 RRP $19.99
