Petit Clos by Clos Henri Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 04-Jan-2016
Fruit from younger vines across ‘Greywacke’, ‘Broadbridge’ and ‘Wither’ soils, fermented in stainless-steel to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 3 months on fine lees. Bright, light straw-yellow colour with pale green hues, lighter on the rim. The nose is softly full and densely packed with aromas of pungent passionfruit along with white stonefruit and floral notes and nuances of minerals. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the flavours of passionfruit, tropical fruits, stonefruits and minerals are tightly bound and restrained in expression. The mouthfeel is soft-textured, with some fruit lusciousness and richness enhancing the smooth flow. A very fine thread of phenolic textures guides the wine, with slippery background acidity providing energy and tension. A little alcoholic power emerges to carry the wine to a light, soft and dry finish of passionfruit and minerals. This is a softly concentrated Sauvignon Blanc with passionfruit flavours and a fine mouthfeel. Serve with seafood, salads and vegetables over the next 2 years. Certified BioGro organic. 17.0/20 Jan 2016 RRP $20.00
