Zephyr Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2011

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 15-May-2012
Brilliant pale straw-green colour, pale on rim. This has a tight, concentrated nose of fresh gooseberries and building pungent passionfruit aromas, along with some flinty notes all interwoven and integrated. Dry to taste, the palate is fulsome, open and upfront with concentrated passionfruit flavours supported by gooseberries and dark herbs. The mouthfeel is soft and harmonious, with balanced, restrained acidity. The flavours are moderated by some alcohol drive through the mid-palate which leads to a gentle, sustained finish with mineral and herbal nuances. This is an open and harmonious Sauvignon Blanc with a concentrated heart of pungent pasionfruit flavours. Match with seafood and poultry over the next 2+ years. A single vineyard wine from Dillons Point, cool-fermented to 13.5% alc. and 5.8 g/L rs. 18.0-/20 May 2012 RRP $21.00
