Sauvignon Blanc, 2012

New Zealand White

Marlborough 75cl

This is a really good 2012, it's a wine that has become a real NYW favourite.
Partial barrel fermenttaion and malolactic fermentation gives this added complexity.
Herbaceous nose with mango, gooseberry, blackcurrant and citrus. It's not tropical on the palate, herbaceous notes with lovely tangy passion fruit, elderflower and citrus. Really good intensity for a 2012, it's tight and crisp with good depth, finishing dry and really clean with hints of minerality, lovely now and sure to develop over the next 18 months, for it's price it's the best 2012 Marlborough Sauvignon i have tasted so far.
