Pacific Potion Hawke’s Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 07-Aug-2017
Bright straw-yellow colour with light golden hues, a little lighter on the edge. This has a soft, fresh nose with positive depth and a good core of green stonefruits and gooseberries with notes of tropical fruits and fresh herbs. The aromatics show freshness and clarity. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate possesses a well-packed and concentrated heat with flavours of white and green stonefruits, gooseberrie and tropical fruits and subtle notes of fresh herbs. The palate is rounded, building to show some phenolic textures which add to the mouthfeel, body and presence, with some good grip. The palate has a fresh, zesty acid thread, and the wine carries with good drive to a finely firm and dry finish of herbs and sonefruits. This is a dry Sauvignon Blanc with a rounded core and a positively textured , fresh palate showing stonefruit, gooseberry and herb flavours. Match with herb-marinated poultry, pork and veal dishes over the next 2-3 years. The fruit was Pellenc harvester picked, given 6 hours skin contact and fermented to 11.6% alc. and <1g/L RS, the wine undergoing 3 months battonage. Certified BioGro organic. Approx. 13,000 bottles made. 17.5+/20 Aug 2017 RRP $25.00
