Paua Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2011

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 25-Oct-2011
Named after the local species of abalone shellfish, and prized for its iridescence of its shell as well as its taste. This is made from fruit from the Wairau Valley cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.5% alc. and 2.5 g/L rs. Very pale-straw colour with some green hues, clear on rim. This has a fresh and softly lifted nose of passionfruit with florals and youthful fermentation esters, attractively presented. Dry to taste, this is a light-weighted, elegant and delightfully proportioned wine displaying fresh passionfruit, gooseberry, citrus and fresh herb flavours, set on a zesty, palate with crisp, racy acidity. Delicate textures lead to a bright, dry finish. Serve as an aperitif or with antipasto, this will be a good match with seafood, especially shellfish over the next 2 years. 3,500 cases made. 16.5/20 Oct 2011 RRP $19.95
