Rongopai Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 03-Sep-2012
The Rongopai brand acquired by Babich in 2007 is a source of value wines. Marlborough fruit cool-fermented to 12.8% alc. and 3.6 g/L rs. Bright, light straw-yellow colour with dome depth, pale on rim. The bouquet is soft, full and even with aromas of ripe passionfruit, gooseberries and green capsicums, lifted by some fermentation esters. Dry to taste, bold gooseberry and passionfruit flavours fill the front palate, are enlivened and brightened by zesty acidity. The textures are smooth and the wine mouthfilling. Subtle capsicum flavours show on the moderately sustained finish. This is an up-front and softly mouthfilling, zingy Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc to serve with seafood and creamy sauced pasta and poultry dishes over the next 2+ years. 16.0+/20 Sep 2012 RRP $15.00
