Slight smoky top note, passionfruit, guava and lime with some nettle-like herbal character, though it’s neatly in the background. Light, fresh, lime and guava tang, pure acidity, a little bit of crunch and flint on a long clean finish. Lovely expression of NZ Sauvignon. Not so brash and abrasive as Marlborough with super ease of drinking too. Rating 93 - Drink by 2019, Gary Walsh, winefront.com.au (MAR/2016).
Winery Tasting Notes
A brilliant pale straw colour with gold lights.
Perfumes of passionfruit, gooseberry and citrus blossom all jump out of the glass.
Subtropical fruit, lime and guava sparkle across a bone-dry and brilliantly crisp palate. With balance, structure and length through to its fine, fresh finish, Estate Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc ’15 delivers all the charm of vintage 2015 in one refreshing mouthful.
Estate Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc ’15 can be enjoyed immediately upon release and will continue to develop in bottle for two years from harvest.
Estate Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc ’15 is best served chilled, either as a refreshing pre-dinner glass of wine, or with salads, seafood dishes, and lightly spiced Asian foods.
