Te Mata ‘Estate Vineyards’ Hawke’s Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 12-Mar-2013
Bright, very pale straw colour with green hues. The nose is very fine and intense with penetrating gooseberry aromas, along with nettles and herbs in the cooler spectrum. This is tight and youthful. Dry to taste, the palate is elegant and slender with cooler-spectrum flavours of pronounced gooseberry, blackcurrant and herbal fruit. The acidity is crisp and racy, and the mouthfeel zesty and refreshing. This has a Marlborough-like expression, with up-front fruit expression, and moderate weight. A wine to drink over the next 2-3 years. Fruit from Bridge Pa, ‘Woodthorppe’ and Havelock Hills, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.0% alc. and dryness. 17.0/20 Mar 2013 RRP $19.90
