te Pa Marlborough Noble Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Sweet Wine from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 13-Feb-2018
Bright golden-yellow colour with good depth, a little lighter on the edge. The nose is full and softly voluminous with deep and densely packed aromas of ripe lime and citrus fruits with green stonefruit and lime marmalade, entwined with honey and fresh herbs, unveiling chalky mineral notes. Very sweet to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate has good depth of rich and luscious flavours of limes, citrus fruits, marmalade and herbs, with notes of tropical fruits, unveiling caramel suggestions. The fruit forms a fine core which is enhanced by a degree of unctuousness. The sweetness is balanced by crisp acidity and the wine flows along a fine-textured, rounded line, leading to an opulent finish. This is a full-flavoured Noble Sauvignon Blanc dessert wine with luscious lime, tropical fruit, marmalade and honied flavours on an unctuous palate. Match with fruit and baked desserts, as well as caramel flavoured desserts over the next 4 years. Hand-picked late-harvested Sauvignon Blanc fruit with botrytis infection, from the ‘Redwood Hills’ vineyard, Awatere, fermented in tank and seasoned French oak to 10.0% alc. and 150 g/L RS, the wine aged 3 months on lees. (375 ml) 18.0-/20 Feb 2018 RRP $29.95
