Rockface Waipara Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 25-Jul-2016
Bright, very pale straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, near colourless on the rim. The nose is fresh and firm, quite slender in presentation with aromas of gooseberries, green stonefruits, herbs, nuances of green capsicums and chalky mineral and lees notes. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the flavours of gooseberries, herbs and minerals are tightly bound and reserved in expression. The mouthfeel is soft in texture with a good, positive guiding core with a fine-textured line and underlying fresh acidity lending balance and liveliness. The wine leads to a soft, lingering finish of gooseberries, herbs and minerals. This is a tightly bound and reserved Sauvignon Blanc with flavours of gooseberries, herbs and minerals and a positive linear core. Match with seafood, salads and vegetables over the next 2 years. Estate fruit from Waipara, fermented in stainless-steel to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 4 months on lees. 16.5/20 Jul 2016 RRP $18.00
