Auntsfield Sauvignon Blanc
Our Wine of the week for the 4th of January 2016 is an New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc from Auntsfield. This lovely bottle is £11.49 at Carpanini’s Emporium, Abergavenny.
COLOUR: Pale straw green
AROMA: Intense and pure aromas of fresh passionfruit, ripe melon and lime. Notes of dried herbs, lemongrass, mandarin and blackcurrant add pungency and intensity to the aromatics.
PALATE: Powerful, tight and elegant. This wine displays intense ripe fruit flavours of passionfruit and white peach, with citrus notes of lime and mandarin pith. The palate has intense concentration and generous weight, balanced by an underlying minerality and tight structure to shape a wine with lively tension and textural balance.
