Southbank Estate - Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2014New Zealand
Anchored in the zesty, fresh end of the flavour spectrum the wine gains a resplendence of fine, bright and ripe acids rising up from its core.
The superb season has fleshed this intensity out with fruit of terrific depth and definition. Aromas of fresh asparagus, lime and sunshine warmed grass clippings sit beautifully over less overt, yet exotic, notes of tree ripened grapefruit and red capsicum.
The mouth-filling immediacy tightens as the juicy acidity strikes the fruit into a long and aromatic finish.
Try with twice baked goat's cheese souffle or lemongrass steamed whole snapper.
