Starborough Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2011

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 03-Jun-2014
60% from ‘O'Dwyers Farm' in the Wairau and 40% from ‘Starborough Terrace' in the Awatere, cool-fermented to 13.2% alc. and 3.7 g/L rs, the wine given light lees contact and no oaking. Bright, very pale straw-yellow, pale on rim. This has a softly full nose of ripe gooseberries, capsicums and tropical fruit notes, open and evenly expressed with some good depth. Dry to taste, the mouthfeel is zesty from fresh acidity, and lusciously juicy on attack with sweet gooseberry and lime flavours, along with hints of passionfruit. Subtle phenolic textures tighten the mid-palate and provide a dry and moderately sustained finish with mineral and herb nuances. This is an approachable Sauvignon Blanc that will be a match with salads, vegetables and creamy sauce pasta, seafood and poultry dishes over the next 2 years. 17.0+/20 Dec 2011 RRP $21.95
