Spy Valley Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 07-Feb-2017
Brilliant, light straw-yellow colour, lighter edged. This has a full, broad and voluminous, well-concentrated nose with aromas of pungent passionfruit melded with layers of tropical fruits, dark herbs and minerals, unfolding subtle notes of green stonefruits. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is rich with flavours of pungent passionfruit melded with tropical fruits, and green stonefruits. This has plenty of presence. The mouthfeel shows very fine textures and light, dry phenolics, with integrated, lacy, background acidity. The wine carries gently to a soft, dry, mouthfilling finish of passionfruit and dark herbs. This is a rich Sauvignon Blanc with passionfruit, herb and green stonefruit flavours with plenty of body, and fine dry textures and background acidity. Match with Pacific Rim fare over the next 2+ years. MS clone fruit from the Waihopi, mid-Wairau and lower-Wairau valleys, fermented in stainless-steel with 8% by indigenous yeasts in oak, of which 25% was new, on solids to 13.0% alc. and 2.3 g/L RS, with most of the wine on lees for 3-4 months. 18.5/20 Feb 2017 RRP $21.00
