Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2016
GOLD MEDAL. Fresh and zingy, the harbinger of summer!
Marlborough had a tremendous harvest in 2016. All parcels were harvested in beautiful condition. As always, with this wine, we are attempting to capture the ‘essence of Marlborough’. In total, we have selected six parcels of fruit from Spring Creek, the Waihopai Valley, Grovetown and the Brancott Valley to craft this wine. Each site adds a different aspect to the finished product.
Marlborough Sauvignon is always very pale when it is young. As this wine ages it will develop straw and green-gold tints.
A melange of gooseberry, passionfruit, and nectarine backed with hints of herbaceousness and a touch of sweat.
This wine has a wonderfully inviting palate. It is rich and fleshy, yet retains classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc raciness.
Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is always at its best in the first 18 months after vintage. The wine will age gracefully for a number of years, but the aromas and flavours will change.
Young Sauvignon Blanc is a very refreshing aperitif. It is also a great accompaniment to seafood dishes, especially mussels, oysters and squid.
Suggested Wine List Description
Crisp and refreshing, reverberating with aromas and flavours of citrus, gooseberry and passion fruit. Plus just a touch of herb on the lively finish. A quintessential New Zealand Sauvignon.
Independent Reviewer’s Comment
“Bright, fresh and zesty with hints of flint and loads of pineapple, lemonade citrus, gooseberry and herbs with capsicum on the finish where touches of boxwood and purple basil mingle.”
