Spencer Hill ‘Latitude 41’ Nelson Sauvignon Blanc Sur Lie 2017

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 21-Nov-2018
Bright straw-yellow colour with lemon-green hues, pale on the rim. The nose is fresh with an amalgam of green stonefruits, greengages and gooseberries along with softly expressed herbal notes, and subtle nutty lees and oak elements. This is firmly concentrated and has intensity. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate kas taut and penetrating flavours of green stonefruits and gooseberries with subtle layers of nutty lees and oak along with fresh herbs. The mouthfeel is refreshing and lively with bright acidity, and the wine carries with good linearity to an elegant, lingering finish. This is a taut and penetrating Sauvignon Blanc with stonefruit and gooseberry flavours along with a subtle layering of nutty lees and oak on a refreshing palate. Match with herb-marinated seafood and Mediterranean fare over the next 2-3 years. Fruit from the plains and Upper Moutere, fermented in tank with a small portion in French oak to 12.3% alc. and 3.7 g/L RS, the wine spending 6 months on lees. 18.0/20 Nov 2018 RRP $21.00
