Spencer Hill Estate ‘Latitude 41’ Nelson Sauvignon Blanc Sur Lie 2016

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 08-Aug-2017
Bright, light straw-yellow colour with suggestions of green hues, very pale on the rim. The nose is light and expressed with delicacy, showing aromas of fresh green stonefruits and herbs with hints of lantana, white florals, growing to form a tight core with an amalgam of nuts and minerals. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a concentrated heart of green stonefruits, with greengages and nectarines, entwined with herbs, florals and nuances of cut grass. The fruit flows along a soft, fine-textured line with subtle acid liveliness providing some energy and tension. The wine carries to a moderately sustained finish of stonefruits and herbs. This is an elegantly concentrated, smaller-scale Sauvignon Blanc with green stonefruit, herb and grassy notes on a finely-textured plate with balanced acid freshness. Serve with herb-marinated seafood and poultry over the next 3+ years Fruit from the Plains and Upper Moutere, cool-fermented in tank with oak contact, equivalence of 10% new to 12.5% alc. and 3.6 g/L RS, the wine aged 6 months on lees. 16.5+/20 Aug 2017 RRP $18.00
