Wairau River Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 27-Aug-2016
Bright, pale straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, lighter on the rim. This has a full, upfront and densely packed nose of pungent, ripe passionfruit aromas along with notes of fresh herbs, and an array of tropical fruits and green stonefruits. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate features soft, mouthfilling flavours of passtionfruit, tropical fruits and herbs, all harmoniously entwined and well-concentrated providing depth and presence. The wine flows along a fine-textured line with soft, mouthwatering acidity providing energy. The wine carries to a soft, full finish of passionfruit. This is a mouthfilling Sauvignon Blanc with deep passionfruit flavours and ripe, but crisp acidity. Serve with Pacific Rim fare over the next 2 years. Fruit primarily from the ‘Home’ and ‘Longbend’ vineyards, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.0% alc. and 2.2 g/L RS, the wine aged on light lees. 18.5-/20 Aug 2016 RRP $20.00
