Waipara West Waipara Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 19-Aug-2013
Very pale straw colour with slight green hues, pale on rim. The nose is fresh and tightly constrained with herbaceous grassy aromas in the cooler spectrum, along with herb and mineral notes, expressed very evenly. Dry to taste and elegantly weighted, well-concentrated grassy flavours reveal stonefruits, lantana and tropical fruit notes, forming a very finely textured palate line. The mouthfeel is enlivened by racy acidity, enhancing the fruit lift and lusciousness. The textures grow to show some firmness, leading to a crisp, dry, finish featuring mouthwatering acidity. This is a tight and linear, racy and dry Sauvignon Blanc with lush lantana and grassy fruit. Match with Mediterranean fare over the next 2-3 years. Fermented with a component in barrel to 13.3% alc. and 4.5 g/L RS, the wine given lees contact. 17.0/20 Aug 2013 RRP $19.00
