Ohau Gravels ‘Single Vineyard’ Ohau Sauvignon Blanc 2011

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 05-Apr-2013
Hand-picked fruit, fermented in seasoned oak with some solids, mostly indigenous yeast fermented to 13.0% alc. and 2.2 g/L rs., the wine aged on gross lees for 10 months. Bright straw-yellow colour with golden hues, lighter on rim. This has a full and concentrated nose, packed with aromas of ripe greengages, nectarines and gooseberries, along with spicy, nutty oak elements well-balanced and harmoniously presented. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, a tightly concentrated core of ripe greengage and nectarine fruit flavours and spicy oak forms a strong palate line. This has good balance and lacy acidity lends a freshness to the fruit and mouthfeel. Some phenolic texture builds and becomes prominent on the back palate, leading to a soft, but dry finish featuring stonefruit and oak notes. This is a concentrated, well-balanced oak-influenced Sauvignon Blanc with dry textures. Match with grilled and roasted seafood, poultry and pork, and vegetable dishes over the next 18 months to 2 years. 17.5-/20 Apr 2013 RRP $34.99
