Pencarrow Martinborough Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 19-Jan-2015
Bright, very pale straw-yellow colour, pale edged. The nose is fresh, elegant ant tightly bound with aromas of white florals, gooseberries, fresh herbs and limes, unfolding esters and passionfruit elements in the glass. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, elegantly proportioned, bright and juicy flavours of white stonefruits, gooseberries and fresh herbs feature on the palate. The mouthfeel is lively and refreshing with slippery acidity enhancing the fruit richness. The wine flows smoothly, gently fading to a dry, fine-textured finish. This is a fresh juicy, up-front Sauvignon Blanc with gooseberry fruit and a slippery, smooth mouthfeel. Serve with seafood and Pacific Rim fare over the next 2 years. Fruit predominantly from the ‘Palliser’ and ‘Pencarrow’ vineyards with grapes from the ‘Collins’ and ‘Southdown’ sites, stainless-steel fermented to 13.3% alc. and 4.1 g/L RS, the wine aged 6 months on lees. 17.5-/20 Jan 2015 RRP $20.65
