te Pa Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 18-Nov-2018
Brilliant straw-yellow with lemon-green hues, a little lighter edged. The nose is light and a little restrained in expression unfolding tropical fruit with passionfruit, fresh herb detail and thirst-quenching mineral notes. The aromatics build in depth with aeration. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has sweetly luscious, but taut flavours of passionfruit along with tropical fruit notes, fresh herbs, unfolding nettle and cut-grass elements. The mouthfeel is fresh and lively and the wine flows with good energy and tension along a fine line, leading to an elegant, lingering finish. This is a sweet-fruited Sauvignon Blanc with passionfruit and tropical fruit, cut-grass and nettle flavours on a fresh, but taut palate. Serve with Pacific Rim fare over the next 2 years. 60% of the fruit from the ‘Home’ vineyard, Wairau Bar and 40% from ‘Redwood Hills’ Awatere, fermented in stainless-steel with 10% of the fruit hand-picked, WBP and fermented in 320 L French cigar-shaped barrels to 13.0% alc. and 3.6 g/L RS. 17.5/20 Nov 2018 RRP $19.95
