Tohu ‘Single Vineyard’ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2011

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 16-Dec-2011
Bright straw-yellow colour with some green hues, pale on edge. This has a tightly bound nose of passionfruit and gooseberries, showing good density and concentration. The nose is a little restrained, but quite compact, with some flint and mineral elements that emerge with air time. Dry and medium-bodied, the fruit flavours of pungent passionfruit and nectarines are concentrated and have excellent presence. A soft lusciousness and rounded mouthfeel is balanced by good acidity, which provides sufficient tension and liveliness, and contributes to a sustained, flavoursome finish. This well-concentrated and rounded Sauvignon Blanc is a match for seafood, poultry and vegetables, and will become richer over the next 2+ years. Fruit from the ‘Wharau', ‘Arapoto', ‘Puketapu' and ‘Toka' blocks in the company's Awatere Valley vineyard, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.5% alc. and 3.9 g/L rs. 18.0/20 Dec 2011 RRP $19.95
