Two Rivers ‘Convergence’ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 12-Nov-2013
Bright, very pale straw colour, pale on rim. The nose is elegantly proportioned with intense and tightly concentrated aromas of passionfruit infused with minerals, the bouquet unfolding fresh herb and blackcurrant leaf detail in the glass. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, intensely concentrated and interwoven flavours of passionfruit, flint and minerals form a tight core and heart. Subtly juicy gooseberry and herb notes add layers of detail. The flavours follow a very fine-textured line with mouthwatering, slippery acidity carrying the flavours to a very long, sustained and thirst-quenchingly dry finish. This is an elegant, very concentrated, and mouthwatering Sauvignon Blanc with passionfruit and minerally flavours. Match with seafood over the next 2-3 years. Fruit from four sites on the banks of the Wairau and Awatere rivers, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.5% alc. and 2.95 g/L RS, with a small portion aged on lees in French oak for 3 months. 18.5+/20 Nov 2013 RRP $25.00 Bright, very pale straw-green colour, light on edge. This has a very stylish and refined bouquet of passionfruit and minerally aromas that build in concentration, depth. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, this is elegantly proportioned with tightly bound and contained flavours of passionfruit and dark herb detail, revealing flinty nuances. The fruit has a subtly sweet richness, enhanced by soft, ripe, mouthwatering acidity. Well-balanced and harmonious, the mouthfeel is smooth and seamless in flow, and leads to a very long, lingering finish of passionfruit and minerals. This is a refined and harmonious, passionfruity and minerally Sauvignon Blanc. Match with poultry and Mediterranean fare over the next 2-3 years. Fruit from four sites in the Wairau and Awatere valleys, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.5% alc. and 2.95 g/L RS, a portion aged 3 months on lees in French oak. 18.0+/20 Aug 2013 RRP $25.00
