Mount Fishtail Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Mt Fishtail Sauvignon Blanc 2013 Hi-Res Label
Country: New Zealand
Winery: Mt. Fishtail
Varietal: Sauvignon Blanc
UPC Code: 752183180443
Tasting Notes:

A brilliant, pale straw green colour. Typical Marlborough Sauvignon aromas of grapefruit, box wood, pea-pods, tobacco & tomato leaf with an intriguing gooseberry yoghurt like complexity. The palate is fresh and full of vigour. Flavours of passionfruit, melon & grapefruit are balanced by limey acidity and good fruit sweetness. The palate is well structured and tapers to a long, lingering finish. A classic Marlborough statement.

Winemaker Notes:

This balanced wine was praised for its creamy texture, ‘warm lemon’ acidity and value for money. After a quiet, savoury aromatic introduction, it delivers surprising power in the mouth in a classic Marlborough manner. Said John Belsham, “With such a lovely ripe fruit framework, you don’t have to be tricky.”
