Nelson Sauvignon Blanc 2015
Sauvignon Blanc is ideally suited to the Nelson region where a combination of warm, sunny days and cool autumn nights, help to create the intense varietal flavours for which this flagship New Zealand wine is recognised.
Nose: Intense floral, gooseberry, elderflower notes with fresh herbs.
Palate: A mouth-filling palate showing delicious gooseberry, green apple and tropical fruit flavours with typical minerally edge. Rich and concentrated, the mid-palate shows genuine breadth and the overall impression remains clean, ripe and fresh.
Vintage: A long sunny autumn resulted in excellent flavour development. All fruit was crushed and destemmed before being cool fermented to preserve the vibrant, fresh Sauvignon characters.
Organic Status: Certified Organic Asure Quality New Zealand.
Diet: Suitable for vegan diet.
Residual sugar: 3.7 gms/L
Acidity: 7.4 gms/L
It is beautifully ripe and intensely aromatic on the nose displaying mango, nectarine, lime zest and dill characters, which lead to a succulent palate that shows excellent mid palate weight and fine texture. The wine is opulent yet crisp and lively, and finishes long and fruity.
««««½ Stars - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Dec 2015
Lovely, juicy wine, along with yellow fruit, citrus and a touch of fresh green herbs. This wine has weight, presence and grows in the glass. - John Saker, Jan 2016
