Urlar ‘Select Parcels’ Gladstone Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 22-Dec-2014
Brilliant, pale straw-yellow colour, lighter on rim. The bouquet is fresh and well-defined with intense and penetrating aromas of white and green stonefruits infused with nutty, oxidative complexities, revealing herbs and chalky, minerally detail. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the flavours of white and yellow stonefruits are subtly melded with complexing nutty notes. The fruit is vibrant and sweetly rich, and backed by lively, refresh acidity lending real energy, brightness and a slippery flow. The wine follows a very fine, soft-textured line, leading to an elegantly proportioned, long, nutty finish. This is an elegant, luscious and slippery, complex, nutty, barrel-influenced Sauvignon Blanc. Match with seafood, poultry and pork over the next 3+ years. Select parcels of fruit destemmed and given some skin contact, and barrel-fermented in seasoned French barriques to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 8 months in oak undergoing batonnage and partial MLF. Following a barrel selection the wine was given further barrel aging on lees. 18.5/20 Dec 2014 RRP $30.00
