Tarras Vineyards Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 08-Mar-2018
Bright, pale straw-yellow colour with green hues, lighter edged. The nose is softly full with fresh aromas of passionfruit and blackcurrant leaf, entwined with nettle notes and lifted white florals, unfolding mineral nuances. The fruit has richness with some pungency. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a gently fresh mouthfeel with intertwined flavours of blackcurrant leaf, passionfruit and fresh herbs, and a little snow pea and nettle nuances. The fruit forms a fine, taut heart with a little phenolic and fruit extract textures providing a positive line. The palate is enlivened by thirst-quenching acidity and the wine carries to an elegant, sustained finish. This is a fresh and gently mouthfilling Sauvignon Blanc with currant and passionfruit flavours with lifted herb notes on a palate with a tight core and mouthwatering acidity. Serve with Pacific Rim fare over the next 2 years. Fruit from the Awatere Valley with A Wairau Valley component, cool-fermented to 13.0% alc. and approx. 2 g/L RS. 18.0/20 Mar 2018 RRP $23.95
