Palliser Estate Martinborough Sauvignon Blanc 2018
Brilliant, light straw-yellow colour with pale gold suggestions, pale on the rim.
The nose is softly full and voluminous with well- concentrated and refined aromas of ripe tropical fruit entwined with passionfruit, harmoniously melded with fresh and dark herbs and subtle white floral nuances.
Serve with Pacific Rim fare over the next 2 years.
This is mouthwatering. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is elegantly proportioned with vibrant and lively, piquant passionfruit flavours with fresh herb detail. The palate possesses refreshing, crisp acidity lending poise and vitality, and the wine flows along a fine line, leading to a luscious, thirst-quenching finish with fine, dry textures. This is a vibrant and lively, elegantly proportioned Sauvignon Blanc with a voluminous nose and finely concentrated flavours of passionfruit, herbs and florals on a mouthwatering palate.
Fruit from the ‘Palliser’, ‘Clouston’ and ‘East Base’ vineyards, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.4% alc., the wine spending 4 months on lees
