Te Whare Ra Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 16-Nov-2015
Bright, very pale straw colour with light golden-green hues, pale on rim. The nose is very elegantly presented, tightly bound with pure, mouthwatering aromas of passionfruit entwined with lime fruit, fresh herbs, subtle notes of white florals and stonefruits and thirst-quenching minerals. The aromatics show finesse, intensity and cut. Medium-full bodied, the palate is tightly constructed but has lusciously rich, bright and juicy, lively fruit flavours of passionfruit, gooseberries, herbs and minerals, lifted by fragrant white stonefruits and florals. The palate line is elegant and brisk with mouthwatering acidity lending vitality and tension, enhancing the fruit sweetness. The wine follows a very fine phenolic line, leading to an elegant, long-lingering, rich-fruited finish. This is a beautifully vibrant, juicy and lusciously elegant Sauvignon Blanc with passionfruit, gooseberry and white stonefruit flavours. Serve with Asian and Pacific Rim fare over the next 2-3 years. Fruit from three sites, 73% from the Lissaman’s ‘Trelawne’ vineyard in the Awatere, 15% from the ‘Linklater’s’ Terrace Stone’ vineyard in Renwick and 12% from the ‘TWR Home Block’ in Renwick, the latter two certified BioGro organic. Cool-fermented in stainless-steel with 8% in old French oak demi-muids to 13.5% alc., the wine aged on lees. 2,400 cases made. 18.5+/20 Nov 2015 RRP $26.00
