Rockburn Central Otago Fumé Blanc 2015

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 27-Jul-2018
Full, light golden-yellow colour with some depth, lighter edged. The bouquet is full and gently voluminous with aromas of green stonefruits, subtle gooseberry notes along with nuances of beans, unfolding a layering of nutty oak. The aromatics are expressed with elegance and harmony, and build in concentration with aeration. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has subtly rich, mouthfilling and harmoniously melded flavours of green stonefruits along with greengages and nectarines, subtle notes of herbs entwined with nutty oak elements. This is delicately detailed. The palate is very finely textured with a fine, phenolic line and balance, soft, lacy acidity. The flavours carry to a long finish. This is a harmoniously detailed oak-fermented Sauvignon Blanc with mouthfilling stonefruit, herb and nutty flavours on a fine-textured palate. Match with harb-marinated poultry, pork and veal dishes over the next 4+ years. A barrel-selection wine. Fruit from the ‘Parkburn’ vineyard, indigenous yeast barrel-fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 18 months in barrel, undergoing MLF. 200 dozen made. 18.0+/20 Jul 2018 RRP $39.99
