Mt Vernon Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 06-Aug-2015
A second tier label for Lawson’s Dry Hills, expressive of freshness, variety and region. Fruit from sub-regions including the Southern Valleys, Rapaura, Brancott and the Awatere, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.0% alc. and 3.8 g/L RS. Brilliant, very pale straw colour with slight green hues, pale on rim. The nose is full, fresh and up-front with punchy and deep fruit aromas of aromatic gooseberry fruit and lifted, pungent passionfruit notes. A refreshing, thirst-quenching chalky minerality adds to the depth and intensity. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the fruit flavours are vibrantly bright and lively, and enhanced by crisp, brisk acidity. Gooseberries, pungent passionfruit, fresh herbs and capsicums show with good succulence. The fruit sweetness is countered by fine, drying phenolic textures that build to carry the concentrated core to a long, dry, textural finish of passionfruit. This is a full, bold and up-front passionfruity Sauvignon Blanc with dry, mouthwatering textures and brisk acidity. Serve with salads, vegetables and Pacific Rim fare over the next 2 years. 17.5-/20 Jul 2015 RRP $16.99
