Paddy Borthwick Wairarapa Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 18-Aug-2017
Bright, light straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, pale edged. The nose is softly fresh and a little restrained, but showing gentle depth and volume of gooseberry and tropical fruits entwined with white florals, fresh herbs, snow peas and hints of nettles. The nose has a fresh, minerally edge. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is elegantly concentrated with a firm core of gooseberries melded with fresh herbs, white florals, cut grass and hints of minerals. The mouthfeel is crisp and slippery, the acidity fresh and racy, and the wine flows smoothly along a fine-textured phenolic line, leading to a light, lingering finish. This is a racy and edgy Sauvignon Blanc with a firm core of gooseberry fruit, herbs and grass, on a slippery, thirst-quenching palate. Fruit from the ‘Borthwick’ vineyard, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.1% alc. and 2.6 g/L RS, the wine aged 5 months on lees with batonnage. 17.5-/20 Aug 2017 RRP $17.00
