Pencarrow Martinborough Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 15-Oct-2012
Brilliant, pale straw-yellow colour with slight green hues. The nose is very full with deep, rich, pungent aromas of passionfruit and savoury tropical fruits unfolding to reveal gooseberry and dark herbal detail. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is packed with soft, rich flavours of passionfruit, limes and sweet grass and herbal elements. The flavours open to become voluminous and mouthfilling, and are enlivened by fresh acidity. The palate flows seamlessly to a long, lingering and full finish brimming with gooseberry and grassy nuances. This is a gently voluminous and smooth Sauvignon Blanc packed with lush passionfruit flavours. Match with Mediterranean and Middle Eastern fare over the next 2+ years. Fruit from company vineyards and contract growers in Martinborough, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.5% alc. and 3.9 g/L rs, the wine undergoing batonnage approx. 8 weeks. 18.0+/20 Oct 2012 RRP $20.65
