SOHO ‘Stella’ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 11-Sep-2015
Bright, very pale straw colour with light green hues, near colourless on the rim. The nose is fresh and elegantly presented with tightly bound, intensely penetrating aromas of white stonefruits entwined with passionfruit and gooseberry notes, and fine, mouthwatering mineral elements. The fruit aromatics are lifted by white floral nuances. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate features a finely concentrated core of white stonefruits, gooseberries and passionfruit, along with thirst-quenching minerals. The acidity is fresh and lacy, lending vitality and energy to the fruit, and poise and liveliness mouthfeel. The palate line is soft textured, with delicate drive leading to a chalky, minerally, dry, sustained finish. This is an elegantly concentrated Sauvignon Blanc with vibrant fruit and fresh acidity. Match with seafood, salads and vegetables over the next 2 years. Fruit from the Awatere Valley, Lower Wairau, Southern Valleys and Upper Wairau cool-fermented to 13.0% alc. and 3 g/L RS. 18.5-/20 Sep 2015 RRP $24.00
