Squawking Magpie ‘Reserve’ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 27-Nov-2013
Bright, very pale straw colour with some green hues, near colourless on rim. The bouquet is tight, and near austere with mineral and flint infused gooseberry fruit aromas, along with a delicate nutty nuance. Very dry to taste and medium-light bodied, the palate is crisp and elegantly presented with light gooseberry flavours, revealing lifted citrus and herb elements. The flavours flow along a soft, dry, and fine-textured line, with soft, lacy acidity adding a slippery, thirst-quenching mouthfeel. The fruit is carried to a brisk, dry, mouthwatering finish. This is a light, soft, gooseberry and mineral-flavoured Sauvignon Blanc with a degree of austerity. Serve with seafood and delicate Asian cuisine over the next 18 months to 2 years. Fruit from the Wairau Valley, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.75% alc. and <3 g/L RS. 16.5+/20 Nov 2013 RRP $19.95
