Omarino Canterbury Sauvignon Blanc 2011

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 19-Nov-2013
Fruit from the ‘Omarino’ vineyard, fermented with 70% in stainless-steel tank and 30% in seasoned French oak to 13.1% alc. and dryness, the barrel portion aged 4 months on lees. Bright straw-yellow colour, very pale on rim. The bouquet is softly full with secondary development showing bean-like nuances intermingling with tropical fruits, herbs and a little grassiness, the nose possessing some depth and presence. Dry to taste, the fruit flavours of grass, gooseberries and herbs are light in expression. Some bean flavours indicate the fruit maturity. The mouthfeel is dry and soft in acidity, with a roundness to the texture which carries through to a dry, grainy finish lifted with acid brightness and grassy, herbal notes. This is a light flavoured Sauvignon Blanc showing some development and soft, grainy textures. Serve with seafood and Mediterranean fare over the next 18 months to 2 years. 15.5+/20 Nov 2013 RRP $19.95
