Yealands ‘Land Made’ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 25-Sep-2017
Bright, very pale straw colour, with slight green hues. The nose is elegant and well-proportioned with soft aromas of pungent passionfruit melded harmoniously with notes of tropical fruits, fresh herbs and suggestions of minerals. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a rounded, dense and relatively deep and concentrated core of pungent passionfruit, green capsicums and herbs. The flavours ae up-front and the palate has the energy and body to form a soft-textured, positively driven core, with lacy acidity providing liveliness. The wine carries to an elegant, lingering finish of passionfruit and herbs. This is an up-front, soft and rounded, well-packed Sauvignon Blanc with passionfruit, herb and capsicum flavours with good freshness. Match with salads and vegetables, and Pacific Rim fare over the next 2 years. Fruit, 75% from Seaview, Awatere and 25% Wairau, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.5% alc. and 3.7 g/L RS. 17.5-/20 Sep 2017 RRP $18.95
