Ripe and concentrated Sauvignon Blanc, with appealing purity and a thread of welcome chalky mineral character adding extra complexity to gooseberry, capsicum and lime zest flavours. Attractive wine that gives a nod in the direction of Sancerre.
This is elegant and restrained, yet not short on fruit concentration and attractive flavours. The bouquet shows elegant aromas of white nectarine, lemon peel, dill and flint, leading to a beautifully weighted and richly fruited palate that is bright and vibrant. The wine shows fine texture and rounded mouthfeel, brilliantly structured by juicy acidity. This would be wonderful with fresh seafood dishes.
Bright, even straw-yellow colour with light green hues, lighter on the rim. The nose is fresh and well-concentrated with aromas of ripe green stonefruits, gooseberries and capsicums melded with soft, piquant herbs and attractively lifted floral elements. Gentle layers of pungent passionfruit, tropical fruits and lantana add detail and interest. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the fruit is initially reticent and elegant in expression, with flavours of green stonefruits, gooseberries, capsicums and herbs, along with a floral lift building to form a good core with a fine-textured phenolic line. The textures are balanced by fresh, lacy acidity and the bright and lively palate leads to a moderately long, mouth-wateringly dry finish of gooseberries, tropical fruits and lantana. This is a stylishly restrained, finely concentrated Sauvignon Blanc with flavours of gooseberries, lifted piquant herbs and white florals on a fine, lacy, dry-textured palate. Serve as an aperitif, with seafood and Pacific Rim fare over the next 2+ years. Fruit from the ‘Heritage’ vineyard, Wairau, fermented in stainless-steel to 13.0% alc, the wine aged on lees. Certified BioGro organic.
The 2015 Sauvignon Blanc has an appealingly savory yeasty, struck flint and mineral laced nose over an apple and lemon core plus a waft of fresh hay. Medium-bodied with a beautiful silkiness to the texture, plenty of yeasty goodness and citrus zing, it finishes with excellent persistence. This should develop nicely over the next 4-6+ years. (LPB)
Very pale yellow. Musky aromas of lime, white pepper, flint and gingery oak. Shows riper yellow fruits on the palate but comes across as quite dry owing to its inner-mouth flinty mineral lift. Dusty, tactile and uncompromising on the finish, with a lingering note of ripe yellow grapefruit. I like this style. (ST)
