Te Whare Ra Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 15-Jun-2017
Bright, pale straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, lighter on the rim. The nose is very elegant and finely proportioned with very good depth of pure gooseberry and passionfruit aromas along with notes of fresh herbs and snow peas. This is taut and concentrated, showing minerally elements. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has a concentrated core of passionfruit and gooseberries, entwined with fresh herbs and snow peas, the fruit showing richness and sweetness. The mouthfeel possesses a stylish juiciness with fresh, racy acidity, the wine flowing briskly along a refined phenolic line. The flavours retain restraint, and the palate carries to a sustained, dry, mouthwatering finish. This is a stylishly concentrated and refined Sauvignon Blanc with fresh passionfruit and gooseberry flavours along with herb nuances on a fine-textured, thirst-quenching palate. Serve with Pacific Rim fare over the next 2+ years. 79% of the fruit from the ‘Trelawne Farm’ vineyard Awatere and 21% from the TWR ‘Home Block’, Renwick, cool-fermented in tank with 6% in older French oak demi-muids to 13.5% alc., the wine aged on fine lees. 2,950 cases made. 18.5+/20 Jun 2017 RRP $26.00
