Two Rivers ‘Convergence’ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 14-Aug-2016
Brilliant pale straw colour with slight green hues, near colourless on the rim. The nose is softly full and gently voluminous with near-ethereal, but intense aromas of ripe passionfruit entwined with fresh herbs, gooseberry fruit, green stonefruits and minerals. This is refined in expression. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate features soft, gentle and harmoniously melded fruit flavours of passionfruit, gooseberries, fresh herbs and minerals. The mouthfeel is very refined and soft-textured with a delicate, dry, phenolic thread and line, enhanced by subtle, lacy acidity. This is subtly refreshing with liveliness and energy that carries the wine to a harmonious, smooth, lingering finish of passionfruit and gooseberries. This is a soft and refined Sauvignon Blanc with harmonious flavours of passionfruit and gooseberries, and a fine-textured, smooth flowing palate and lacy acid freshness. Match with seafood and Pacific Rim fare over the next 2 years. Fruit from five sites in the Awatere, Southern Valleys and Rapaura sub-regions, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.5% alc. and 1.8 g/L RS, a portion of the wine aged 3 months on fine lees. 8,000 cases made. 18.0/20 Aug 2016 RRP $24.00
