Urlar Gladstone Sauvignon Blanc 2010

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 14-Feb-2011
This is a most consistent label, and vies with Palliser Estate as one of the richest Sauvignon Blancs from the Wairarapa. Straw yellow with the barest golden hint, the bouquet is one of ripe passionfruit backed by some of the decadent pungent thiol aromatics, along with an underlying herb/nettle amalgam. On palate, there is depth and concentration of fruit, handling the 14.0% alc. well. Lovely passionfruit and ‘sweaty' elements along with bracing, fresh acidity. This will fill out over the next year and layers of interest from the partial barrel ferment will emerge. A very good Sauvignon Blanc from the slow-to-ripen 2010 harvest that will be delicious with all seafood over the next 2-3 years plus. 18.0-/20 Nov 2010 RRP $23.35
