Petit Clos Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2011

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 21-Mar-2012
Bright, pale-straw colour with slight green hues on edge. The nose is firm and intense with an amalgam of gooseberry fruit and flinty lees, with hints of passionfruit, the bouquet showing some depth and power. Dry to taste, the flavours of gooseberries are rich and juicy with an up-front fruitiness, combining well with flint and mineral notes. Balanced acidity provides crispness, and a slight phenolic thread is noticeable on the dry finish. Estate Sauvignon Blanc from the youngest vines from the three soil types of Wither clay, Broadbridge clay and Greywacke river stones, stainless-steel fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged on lees for 6 months with stirring. Showing lees work on the nose, this has good fruitiness and a dry finish. Match with seafood and poultry over the next 2+ years. 17.0+/20 Mar 2012 RRP $19.90
