Vavasour Awatere Valley Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 01-Nov-2016
Brilliant, very pale straw colour with slight green hues, near colourless on the rim. This has a softly full nose with fresh aromas of pungent passionfruit harmoniously entwined with tropical fruit, herbs, cut grass and snow peas, unfolding mineral elements. The aromatics build gently to form a concentrated core. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate possesses a fine core of fresh passionfruit along with flavours of cut grass, fresh herbs and nuances of minerals. The fruit is guided by a fine, but firm phenolic-threaded line, and the mouthfeel is enlivened by brisk acidity. The flavours flow with plenty of energy to a tight and concentrated, lingering finish of passionfruit and herbs. This is a tight and firm passionfruity Sauvignon Blanc with cut grass and mineral nuances, a fine and firm line with mouthwatering acidity. Serve with Pacific Rim fare over the next 2+ years. Awatere Valley fruit cool-fermented in tank to 13.5% alc. and 2.8 g/L RS. 18.0/20 Nov 2016 RRP $21.00
