Mud House ‘Sub Region Series’ ‘Rapaura’ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 10-Nov-2016
Bright, light straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, lighter on the rim. The nose is fresh with gentle aromas of pungent passionfruit entwined with nuances of tropical fruit and fresh herbs, the aromatics building in depth and breadth in the glass, unveiling cut grass and mineral notes. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is mouthwatering and slippery with mouthwatering flavours of pungent passionfruit underlined by fresh, racy acidity lending energy and tension. The palate is elegantly proportioned and well-balanced, flowing along a soft-textured line, leading to a light, dry, passionfruity finish. This is a soft, slippery, mouthwatering, passionfruity Sauvignon Blanc with a smooth-flowing texture and energetic acidity. Match with seafood, salads and vegetables over the next 2 years. Fruit from ‘Rapaura’, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.0% alc. and 3.5 g/L RS. 3,375 cases made. 17.0+/20 Nov 2016 RRP $20.00
