Framingham Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand – Marlborough

18/20

Bright pale straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, very light on the rim. The nose is tightly bound and slender in proportion, quite elegant, but with good intensity and detail, showing fresh gooseberry fruit with nuances of passionfruit, tropical fruits, unfolding herbal notes , white florals and thirst-quenching minerals. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has elegantly concentrated flavours of ripe gooseberry fruit entwined with nuances of passionfruit and herbs, along with florals and minerals. The palate is mouthwatering with crisp, zesty acidity, and the wine flows along a very fine, phenolic-threaded line leading to a tight, lingering, dry, thirst-quenching finish. This is an elegant but concentrated and intense Sauvignon Blanc with fine gooseberry and tropical fruit flavours with floral and mineral detail. Serve with Pacific Rim fare over the next 2+ years. Fruit from 12 sites in the Wairau Valley with 90% fermented in stainless-steel and 10% in puncheons and barriques, a small portion fermented on skins, with 5% indigenous yeasts to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 4-5 months on lees. 18.0/20 Mar 2017 RRP $21.00
