Maison Noire Hawke’s Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 13-Feb-2017
Bright, pale straw colour with slight green hues. The nose is elegantly concentrated with a firm core and rounded aromas of green stonefruits and herbs, showing subtly pungent greengage fruit with nutty lees and oak complexities. Dry to taste and light-medium bodied, the plalate possesses flavours of green stonefruits, greengages and dark herbs, along with subtle nuances of nettles and lift notes. The palate has a taut and firm core with nutty suggestions, but fresh from lacy acidity. The palate flows with good tension along a piquant, fine, grainy textured line, leading to a dry finish of green stonefruits and herbs. This is a firm and taut Sauvignon Blanc with green stonefruit and herb flavours along with subtle less and nutty oak notes, on a refreshing palate. Serve with salads and vegetables and Mediterranean fare over the next 2+ years. Fruit from the plains between Havelock North and Napier, by the Tuki Tuki River. Sauvignon Blanc fermented in stainless-steel with 10% Viognier fermented in seasoned oak to 12.7% alc. and dryness, the wine undergoing batonnage. 17.0/20 Feb 2017 RRP $18.00
