te Pa Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 13-Feb-2018
Bright, even, light straw-yellow colour, paler edged. The nose is very tight and concentrated with an intense core of passionfruit and tropical fruits along with piquant fresh herbs, snow peas and green capsicums. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has elegantly concentrated and intense flavours of passionfruit melded with fresh herbs and subtle cooler-spectrum nettle notes. The mouthfeel is gently rich and forms a concentrated heart balanced by lacy acidity. The wine carries smoothly along a soft-textured line, leading to a lingering finish of passionfruit and nettles. This is an elegantly concentrated Sauvignon Blanc with passionfruit, herb and nettle flavours with a rounded core and refreshing acidity. Serve with Pacific Rim fare over the next 2 years. 100% Sauvignon Blanc, 40% from the ‘Home’ Wairau Bar vineyard, 35% from the ‘Alabama Road’ vineyard and 25% from the ‘Redwood Hills’ vineyard, Awatere Valley, 90% fermented in stainless-steel and 10% hand-picked, WBP and fermented in 320 L French ‘Cigar’ barrels to 13.0% alc. and 3.5 g/L RS. 18.0-/20 Feb 2018 RRP $18.95
