Concentrated sauvignon blanc in quite a ripe style with nectarine, stone fruit, grapefruit, gooseberry and red capsicum flavours. Very appealing and quite textural wine with good weight and a lengthy finish. A class act.
Bright, very pale straw colour with slight green hues, near colourless on the rim. The nose is full with harmoniously presented aromas of ripe green stonefruits, showing nectarines and greengages along with aromatic fresh herbs, capsicums and a subtle layering of minerals. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is fresh, crisp and zesty with bright, racy acidity enlivening the flavours of ripe gooseberries and green stonefruits. The flavours are softly balanced and integrated, and combine with soft phenolic textures to lend good mouthfeel and presence. The fruit has an underlying richness and lusciousness, enhanced by the acidity, and carries to a long, fine-textured, dry finish. This is a harmonious-fruited Sauvignon Blanc with flavours of gooseberries and green stonefruits, on a brisk, racy, fine-textured palate. Match with herb-marinated seafood and poultry dishes over the next 2+ years. Fruit from multiple sites predominantly Lower Brancott, Renwick, Fairhall, Omaka, with some Rapaura material, stainless-steel, 25% fermented with indigenous yeasts to 13.0% alc.
The 2016 Sauvignon Blanc is a fresh, crisp effort that offers a touch of reduction in its white grapefruit, mint and green herb aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, with bright acidity, it’s a textbook Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc to drink over the coming year or two.
