Terrace Edge Waipara Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand – Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date - 20-Oct-2014


Right, light straw yellow colour with slight green hues, lighter on rim. The nose is full, soft and broad with up-front aromas of gooseberries, nectarines and greengages harmoniously entwines forming a good core, revealing complexing smoky barrel-ferment nuances with aeration. Dry to taste, the palate features an array of green stonefruit flavours melded with nutty, spicy and smoky oak elements. This has good breadth, depth and weight and the mouthfeel is lively and mouthwatering with bright, racy and slippery acidity guiding the wine along a grainy-textured line. Herb and spice flavours unfold, lifting the dry-textured, acid-cutting finish. This is a weighty and complex oak-influenced Sauvignon Blanc with a racy mouthfeel and dry finish. Serve with salads and vegetables, and herb-marinated poultry and pork dishes over the next 2-3 years. Sauvignon Blanc fruit cool-fermented in stainless-steel with 30% in seasoned French oak barriques to 12.5% alc. and 2 g/L RS, the wine aged 6 weeks on lees. Certified BioGro organic. 17.5-/20 Oct 2014 RRP $17.00
