Wildflower Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 20-Mar-2018
Bright, pale straw colour, near colourless on the edge. The nose is youthfully taut and tightly bound with slender aromas of passionfruit, nettles, cut-grass and piquant herbs. Though smaller-scale, this has good intensity. Dry to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate is elegant with penetrating flavours of passionfruit, nettles and cut-grass, along with fresh herbs and snow peas. The fruit is in the cooler spectrum. The palate has brisk and racy acidity enlivening the mouthfeel, and the wine flows with energy and tension along a fine line, leading to a long, slim finish of pungent passionfruit. This is a slender, but penetratingly flavoured Sauvignon Blanc with passionfruit, nettle and grassy flavours on a racy palate. Serve with Pacific Rim fare over the next 2 years. Marlborough cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.5% alc. and 3.7 g/L RS, TA 7.1 g/L and pH 3.24. 16.5/20 Mar 2018 Export Only. RRP $N/A
