Rapaura Springs ‘Reserve’ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 22-Aug-2017
Bright, very pale straw-yellow colour with slight green hues. This has a full, voluminous and intensely packed nose with passionfruit and tropical fruit aromas along with edgy herbs and snow peas, revealing subtle white floral elements. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has penetrating flavours of passionfruit and fresh herbs, with notes of tropical fruits, snow peas and cut grass. The palate is mouthwatering with zesty acidity, and the wine flows along a very fine-textured phenolic line with good tension and acidity. The wine carries to an elegant, long and sustained finish of passionfruit, herbs and nettles. This is an intense and penetrating Sauvignon Blanc with aromas and flavours of passionfruit, edgy herbs, cut grass and tropical fruits on a zesty palate with very fine textures. Serve with Pacific Rim fare over the next 2 years. Fruit from the Rapaura, Dillons Point and Waihopi districts, fermented to 13.0% alc. and 3.5 g/L RS. 18.5/20 Aug 2017 RRP $18.99
