Starborough ‘Family Estate’ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 12-Oct-2017
Bright, very pale straw colour with slight green hues, near colourless on the edge. The nose is very fresh and elegantly presented with pungent passionfruit aromas melded with fresh herbs, some cut grass and nettle notes, and chalky mineral elements. The aromatics build in intensity and penetration with aeration. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has bright, lively flavours of fresh passionfruit and gooseberries along with fresh herbs and nuances of cut grass and nettles. The fruit has good intensity. The palate has fine, dry phenolic texture along with crisp, refreshing, mouthwatering acidity. The wine flows positively to an elegant, lingering finish of gooseberries and herbs. This is a refreshing, lively and bright passionfruity and gooseberry flavoured Sauvignon Blanc with herb and cut grass notes on a fine-textured palate. Serve with seafood and Pacific Rim fare over the next 2 years. Fruit from 50% ‘O’Dwyers Farm’, 30% ‘Long Lane Vineyard’ and 20% ‘Starborough Terrace’, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.0% alc. 17.5+/20 Oct 2017 RRP $19.95
