Johner Estate ‘Sur Lie’ Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Gladstone Wairarapa | $26

This single vineyard Sauvignon Blanc has some barrel fermentation and also extended lees contact giving the wine a broader, more complex character, along with a flinty minerality reminiscent of Loire Valley Sauvignon Blanc.

Elegant, with a bright, clear lemon gold hue and an intriguing nose of stone fruit and gooseberry. Fresh and inviting, the palate shows intense lemon and tropical notes with a creamy undertone. A wonderful flinty and mineral feel, with racy acidity and a long, crisp finish. Tasting Notes – Johner Estate

 Bright, pale straw colour with pale green hues, near colourless on the rim. The nose is fresh and vibrant with fragrant fruit aromas of passionfruit melded with white florals, along with piquant herbs, unfolding notes of nettles and cut-grass, and thirst-quenching minerals. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is bright and lively with finely packed flavours of passionfruit, white stonefruits, gooseberries and herbs, and some nettle-like elements. The fruit forms a smooth, linear core with underlying acidity lending energy. The wine carries to an elegant, lingering finish of passionfruit and nettles. This is a refreshing, smooth flowing Sauvignon Blanc with fragrant, but concentrated flavours of passionfruit, herbs and nettles.” 18.5/20 Raymond Chan – Wine Reviewer
