Vavasour Awatere Valley Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 05-Nov-2017
Bright pale straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, lighter edged. The nose is fresh with vibrant aromas of tropical fruits, passionfruit and gooseberries, unfolding an array of fresh herbs, snow peas, nettles, cut grass, and floral detail with mineral elements. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has intense and penetrating flavours of passionfruit and gooseberries, herbs and snow peas, with nettle notes. The fruit forms a tight and well-concentrated core, and flows along a fine-textured line enlivened by brisk, mouthwatering acidity. This has depth and detail. The wine carries to a very long, lingering, softly concentrated finish of passionfruit, herbs and nettles. This is a fresh and vibrant Sauvignon Blanc with intensely penetrating and detailed flavours of passionfruit, tropical fruits, herbs and cut grass on fine, mouthwatering palate. Match with Pacific Rim fare over the next 2 years. Awatere Valley fruit cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.5% alc. and 4 g/L RS. 18.5/20 Nov 2017 RRP $22.00
