Palliser Estate Martinborough Sauvignon Blanc 2010

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 13-Feb-2011
Consistently the most rich, flavoursome and weighty Sauvignon Blanc from the Wairarapa for well over a decade and a half. This 2010 is the product of a cool and long-ripening season, which shows in the intensity and penetrating nature of the aromatics, and greater lift. Brilliant straw yellow with green hues, the bouquet exudes clarity and purity of ripe, sweet passionfruit and capsicum aromas. Dry on palate, the wine is beautifully fine-grained in expression, more elegant and stylish than is usually the case. Though slightly lighter, there is a more silky, sleek mouthfeel, resulting in a wine of more finesse. 13.5% alc. Drink now and over the next 2+ years with salads, seafood and Asian food. 18.5-/20 Dec 2010 RRP $20.00
