Pegasus Bay Waipara Valley Sauvignon/Semillon 2012

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 18-Aug-2014
70% Sauvignon Blanc and 30% Semillon, indigenous yeast fermented, the Semillon in seasoned French oak to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 6 months on lees. Bright, pale straw-yellow colour with lemon-green hues, lighter on rim. The nose is elegant and softly presented with fresh green stonefruit aromas with delicate herbal detail providing aromatic lift and subtly complexing mineral nuances, all harmoniously integrated. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, a concentrated core of green stonferuits and herbal flavours show with succulence. The fruit richness is balanced and cut by crisp acidity, and the palate is elegant in proportion with a fine phenolic line smoothly carrying the wine. As the wine flows, the palate tends to dryness and the flavours lead to a long, lingering finish. This is an elegantly concentrated Sauvignon/Semillon blend with fresh, fruit and a fine linearity and dry mouthfeel. Match with seafood and Mediterranean cuisine over the next 3-4 years. 18.5-/20 Aug 2014 RRP $28.95
