Mt Beautiful North Canterbury Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 19-Jun-2017
Bright, even straw-yellow colour with lemon-green hues. This has an elegant, tightly bound nose, quite slender in presentation, with aromas of cut grass and nettles, and subtle notes of gooseberries, green stonefruits and suggestions of green bean. The aromatics display cooler spectrum elements. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate possesses cooler spectrum flavours of cut grass, nettles and green stonefruits, along with fresh herbs and nuances of green beans. The mouthfeel is fresh, elegant and zesty with fine, lacy acidity, and the wine flows along an elegantly proportioned and fine-textured line, leading to a thirst-quenching finish. This is a cooler spectrum Sauvignon Blanc with cut grass, nettly and gooseberry fruit, and suggestions of green beans on an elegant, zesty, mouthwatering palate. Serve with salads and vegetables and Pacific Rim fare over the next 5 years. Fruit fermented in stainless-steel with a small portion in new and seasoned 300 L barrels to 14.1% alc. and <2 g/L RS. 12,000 cases made. 17.5-/20 Jun 2017 RRP $24.00
