Tussock Nelson Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 04-Sep-2013
Bright pale straw colour with light green hues, pale n rim. The nose is fresh with full, voluminous aromas of gooseberry fruit with cool-spectrum nettle and exotic herb notes, and minerally elements, growing in intensity in the glass. Dry and medium-bodied, up-front, but finely presented flavours of gooseberries and nettles form a linear palate. The fruit is enlivened by lacy, slippery acidity providing a fine-textured flow. The flavours become lighter and more slender through mid-palate, leading to a long, dry finish with fresh, mouthwatering acidity. This is a fresh and elegant gooseberry flavoured Sauvignon Blanc with a slippery, mouthfeel. Match with seafood, poultry, salads and vegetables over the next 2 years. Fruit from the ‘Burkes Bank’ vineyard at Hope in the Waimea district, indigenous yeast fermented in tank with 5% in old oak to 13.0% alc. and 2.3 g/L RS, the wine aged on lees. 16.5+/20 Sep 2013 RRP $19.00
