2015 Auntsfield Estate 'Single Vineyard' Sauvignon Blanc Southern Valleys of Marlborough


SCORING SYSTEM SCORE
Vinous
"(just a touch of wild yeast fermentation in used oak; part of the wine is left on its full lees): Pale, bright yellow. Brisk, nicely ripe aromas of kiwi, lime, white peach, white flowers and green and white pepper. Boasts a lovely balance of fruit sweetness and bright acidity, as well as very good mid-palate density. Strong saline and capsicum qualities are buffered by excellent thickness of texture. Suave, round, fine-grained and dry, with a tactile back end featuring a dusty impression of extract and lovely lift and length. The savory, vibrating finish features grapefruit pith, lime and gooseberry, plus a strong saline influence."
