Looking Glass Wines - 2015 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc
2015 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

2015 was a vintage with perfect conditions. A cool start followed with plenty of frosts, leading to warm, dry season. Consequently, flavours were enhanced, with a textured palate and obvious acid.

Again, we have blended from the more northerly Waihopai ( 40%), and the remainder from various Awatere vineyards, south of Blenheim.

The nose is very lifted, and distinctive. Perfumed, with citrus flowers, passionfruit and stone fruit aromas.

The palate is medium bodied, and textured. Typical Sauvignon Blanc flavours, with lime, and pear, with a little nettle evident to the end, and a fresh acid finish.

Focused, linear, and structured – the wine is already good to drink, and will be through the next 18 months or so.

A complete wine with lovely lingering flavours. An elegant, refined and classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.
