Sisters Ridge North Canterbury Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 20-Nov-2018
Bright straw-yellow colour with hints of lemon-gold hues, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is soft and gently full with moderately deep aromas of tropical fruit entwined with gooseberries and green capsicums, sweet fresh herbs along with a floral lift. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has gently rich and luscious flavours of tropical fruits, sweet gooseberries, notes of green capsicums and herbs. The flavours form a rounded core and the mouthfeel is enlivened by fresh, lacy acidity. The wine flows along a light-textured phenolic line leading to a lingering finish. This is a sweetly rich and lush, tropical-fruited dry Sauvignon Blanc with a good core, light textures and a fresh mouthfeel. Match with salads and vegetables and Pacific Rim fare over the next 2 years. Clone UCD 1, MS clone, with BDX 316 and BDX 317, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.5% alc. and < 3 g/L RS. 10,550 cases made. 17.0+/20 Nov 2018 RRP $12.50
