Ten Rocks Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 23-Dec-2012
Fruit from three sites, in the Lower Wairau, Awatere and Omaka, stainless-steel fermented to 12.8% alc. and 4.4 g/L rs. A small amount of Semillon is included in the blend. Pale straw colour with slight green hues. The nose is full, voluminous and even with fresh, mouthwatering aromas of passionfruit, gooseberries, capsicums and fresh garden herbs. Dry to taste and medium bodied, bright, lively and acid-tinged flavours of passionfruit and gooseberries form a good, deep core. Brisk and crisp acidity lifts the fruit, revealing floral and lime notes. This flows softly and smoothly through the palate, with a near slipperiness, the flavours leading to a soft, nuanced finish. This is a smooth flowing, lively Sauvignon Blanc with a voluminous bouquet of passionfruit and gooseberries. Serve with antipasto, seafood, salads and vegetables over the next 2 years. 17.5/20 Dec 2012 RRP $16.95
