Spy Valley ‘Single Vineyard’ ‘Area H’ Lower Waiau Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 06-Nov-2013
Bright, very pale straw colour with some green hues, near colourless on rim. The bouquet is softly full and voluminous with a well-packed aromatic melange of ripe gooseberries, exotic stonefruit, lantana, herbs and nuances of smoke. Dry to taste, mouthfilling and broad flavours of ripe gooseberries, tropical fruits and grass form a rich and dense core. The fruit is softly luscious with fine, gentle textures in support and slippery acidity enhancing the flow through the palate line. Waves of exotic fruit and herb nuances unfold and are driven by fruit presence and acid zest to ta a full-flavoured, long and dry-textured finish. This is a fulsome, lusciously rich Sauvignon Blanc with an array of ripe gooseberry flavours and slippery acidity. Match with Mediterranean-inspired fare over the next 2 years. Fruit from the ‘H171’ vineyard in the Lower Wairau, hand-picked and WBP, fermented in seasoned oak to 14.0% alc. and 2.9 g/L RS. 200 cases made. 18.0+/20 Nov 2013 RPR $21.90
