Tohu ‘Mugwi Reserve’ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 19-Dec-2016
Bright, even straw-yellow colour with lemon-green hues, paler edged. The bouquet is very full and richly concentrated with layers of greengage, nectarine and green stonefruit flavours melded with dark herbs and complexing nutty barrel-ferment notes along with smoke and mineral nuances. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is rounded and softly concentrated with a core of flavours that unfold in layers, showing ripe greengages, nectarines, an array of green stonefruits, tropical fruits and herbs. The fruit is harmoniously melded with nutty oak elements, spices, minerals and the flavours fill the mouth with richness. The palate is smooth-textured, with subtle phenolics, and ripe, integrated acidity, and flows seamlessly to a long and sustained finish with rich stonefruit, nutty and smoky notes. This is a rich and concentrated, complex layered oak-influenced Sauvignon Blanc with a smooth, integrated mouthfeel. Match with herb-marinated poultry and pork dishes over the next 3+ years. Fruit from the ‘Kouka’, ‘Puketapu’, ‘Arapoto’ and ‘Wharau’ blocks in the company’ Upper Awatere Valley vineyard, indigenous yeast fermented in seasoned French oak to 13.0% alc. and dryness, the wine aged in barrel undergoing batonnage and 100% MLF. 19.0-/20 Dec 2016 RRP $29.95
