Old House Vineyards Nelson Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 19-Feb-2018
Bright, light straw-yellow colour, lighter on the edge. The nose is very fresh and taut with a tight core of finely-expressed passionfruit aromas along with some gooseberry and fresh herb notes, unfolding white florals, nettles and mineral elements. Dry to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate has soft, cooler-spectrum flavours of nettles and cut grass along with light passionfruit and fresh herb elements. The flavours form a soft, dry-textured core with underlying acid energy. The wine carries along a fine-textured line leading to a slender, but lingering finish of nettles and herbs. This is a taut, refreshing Sauvignon Blanc with cool-spectrum nettle and grassy flavours and a dry-textured line. Serve as an aperitif and with seafood over the next 2 years. Fruit fermented in stainless-steel to 12.4% alc. and 8 g/L RS. 17.0/20 Feb 2018 RRP $21.00
