Pegasus Bay Waipara Valley Sauvignon Semillon 2011

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 05-Aug-2013
Even straw-yellow colour with slight green-gold hues. The nose is fresh and concentrated with aromas of nectarines and greengages, along with white florals, entwined with subtle reductive, flinty complexities. Dry to taste and elegantly proportioned, concentrated and intense flavours of greengages, stonefruits and herbs are complexed by flinty lees work. The palate has a very fine-textured, linear core with excellent acidity and tension providing drive along with some alcohol power. The flavours lead to a very long, lingering, tightly bound finish. This is a very elegant, concentrated Sauvignon Blanc based wine with very fine textures and complex flavours. Serve with herb-marinated white meats and Mediterranean fare over the next 3-4+ years. 70% Sauvignon Blanc and 30% Semillon from vines over 25 y.o., indigenous fermented separately, the Semillon in old French oak, to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 6 months on lees. 18.5+/20 Aug 2013 RRP $27.95
