FEATURED WINES IN THIS REVIEW



Caythorpe Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand – Marlborough

17.5+/20
Brilliant, very pale straw colour with slight green hues, near colourless on the rim. This has a soft and harmonious, moderately full nose with aromas of pungent passionfruit unfolding tropical fruit, cut grass, fresh herb and lime detail, along with nuances of minerals. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is soft and openly accessible with ethereal flavours of ripe passionfruit revealing waves of tropical fruits, limes, capsicums and cut grass that fill the mouth. The mouthfeel is soft-textured and rounded, but refreshing with bright and piquant acidity underlining the fruit, and the wine flows easily, leading to a long. lingering, softly concentrated finish of passionfruit. This is a softly refreshing and harmoniously presented Sauvignon Blanc with passionfruit flavours. Serve with seafood, salads and vegetables and Pacific Rim fare over the next 2 years. Fruit from the ‘Caythorpe’ vineyard, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.0% alc. and 2.3 g/L RS. 17.5+/20 Sep 2015 RRP $19.95

Caythorpe Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand – Marlborough

18/20
Bright, very pale straw colour with slight green hues. The nose is full and gently voluminous with fragrant passionfruit and tropical fruit aromas along with notes of gooseberries, fresh herbs and nuances of minerals. The aromas and detail build in intensity to form a well-concentrated core. Dry to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate features fresh, lively and bright flavours of gooseberries and passionfruit, fresh herbs, lifted white florals and succulently rich green stonefruits. The fruit sweetness and fresh acidity are balanced by a fine-textured phenolic thread which guides the palate to an elegantly proportioned, lingering, dry, subtle-flavoured finish of gooseberries and passionfruit. This is an elegant and aromatic Sauvignon Blanc with gooseberry and passionfruit flavours, and a fresh, fine-textured palate with a lingering dry finish. Serve with salads and vegetables, and Pacific Rim fare over the next 2 years. Fruit from two small parcels cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.7% alc. and 3.5 g/L RS, the wine aged a short period on lees. 18.0/20 Sep 2016 RRP $19.95
