Zephyr Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 30-Apr-2014
Bright, pale straw colour with slight green hues, near colourless on rim. The nose is soft with gentle pungent passionfruit aromas infused with chalky minerals, growing in depth and revealing herbal and gooseberry elements with aeration. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, gently luscious flavours of passionfruit and gooseberries form a positive core. The mouthfeel is smooth-flowing with a dry-textured, chalky line, and discreet, background acid liveliness and freshness. Sweet fruit nuances emerge and are carried to a long, lingering, elegant finish. This is a soft-textured dry Sauvignon Blanc with chalky, minerally fruit. Match with poultry, salads and vegetables, and with Mediterranean fare over the next 2 years. Fruit from Dillons Point from vines planted in 2003, cool-fermented to 13.5% alc. and 3 g/L RS. 18.0-/20 Apr 2014 RRP $25.00
