Te Whare Ra Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 06-Jun-2014
Bright, very pale straw colour with slight green hues, pale on rim. The nose is slender, taut and tightly bound, and delicate in its intensity, with aromas of passionfruit, white flowers, minerals and nettles forming a very fine and intricate array on bouquet. Dry to taste, tightly bound, penetrating flavours of lifted, vibrant and juicy passionfruit, lime and white flowers are enlivened by bright, softly ripe acidity and balanced by chalky mineral textures. The palate has excellent linearity and drive, the mouthfeel possessing vitality and raciness with steel cut, leading to a very long, lingering and dry finish with passionfruit and wet-stone nuances. This is a vibrant, penetrating, taut Sauvignon Blanc with a chalky, minerally mouthfeel. Serve as an aperitif, with seafood, salads and vegetables, and with Mediterranean fare over the next 3 years. Fruit 78.5% from the ‘Trelawne Farm’ vineyard, Awatere and 21.5% ‘TWR Home Block’, Renwick, stainless-steel fermented with 6% in older French oak demi-muids to 13.5% alc., the wine aged on lees. 1,720 cases made. 18.5+/20 Jun 2014 RRP $26.00
