Woollaston ‘Mahana’ Nelson Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 02-Dec-2014
Full, even, light golden-straw colour with a lighter rim. This has a full and softly concentrated nose with dense and rich aromas of ripe yellow stonfruits intermixed with quince, herbs and lantana, along with grassy and spicy elements and nuts and smoky detail. This is quite individual in expression. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the flavours are restrained, but complex with yellow and green stonefruits, grass and lantana, and herbs unfolding in waves of interest. The fruit is supported by a fine-textured palate along with fresh, balanced, lacy acidity. This has good drive, carrying the wine to a long, dry finish with herb and stonefruit nuances. This is a complex and individually flavoured Sauvignon Blanc with fine textures and freshness. Match with herb-marinated seafood and white meats over the next 3-4 years. Fruit from the ‘Burkes Bank’ vineyard on Waimea gravels picked at 5 t/ha, indigenous yeast fermented on skins to 13.0% alc. and <1 g/L RS, the wine aged in 30% new acacia wood barriques and oak. Certified BioGro organic. 18.5+/20 Dec 2014 RRP $32.00
