Petit Clos Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 28-Nov-2013
Fruit from younger vines on Wither clay, Broadbridge clay and Greywacke river stone soils, fermented in stainless-steel to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 4 months on lees with batonnage. Bright, pale straw-yellow colour with green-golden hues. The bouquet is full and solid with a combination of soft gooseberry fruit, minerals and herbs with strong reductive gunflint complexities. Dry to taste, gently luscious gooseberry and passionfruit flavours unfold layers of reductive interest. The mouthfeel is soft in richness, with an intense, pungent and flinty amalgam forming a packed core. The acidity is restrained, allowing soft textures to carry the flavours to a dry, mellow finish. This is a soft and round textured Sauvignon Blanc with pungent fruity and gunflint infused flavours. Serve with seafood and herb-marinated poultry dishes over the next 2 years. Certified BioGro organic. 17.0+/20 Nov 2013 RRP $19.90
