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

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 03-Jul-2018
Bright, light straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, a little lighter edged. The nose is softly fresh with gently full aromas of gooseberry fruit with subtle notes of cut-grass and nettles, with some green bean nuances, integrated with nutty lees and mineral elements. This is very harmonious in presentation. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a firm and taut core of gooseberry fruit with cut-grass, fresh herbs and green bean notes, unfolding nutty lees and oak elements. The mouthfeel is fresh and crisp with lacy acidity, and the wine flows smoothly along a fine line, leading toan elegant, lingering finish. This is a taut and concentrated Sauvignon Blanc with gooseberry, herb and nettle flavours on a firm, racy palate with subtle nutty and mineral nuances and a fine flowing line. Match with Pacific Rim fare over the next 2 years. Fruit from the Upper Moutere and Waimea Plains, 50% indigenous yeast fermented, 70% in tank with 30% in barrel to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 6 months on lees with batonnage, with 10% undergoing MLF. 17.0+/20 Jul 2018 RRP $18.99
