Mount Nelson Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"A joint venture between Tuscany’s Ludovico and Piero Antinori, Mount Nelson’s 2010 is a fresh, herbal rendering of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Treble notes of tomato leaf and bell pepper predominate, with grapefruit providing the bass." Wine Enthusiast

WE 90 Pts - Clear and bright with pale green and straw highlights. Fragrant and intense with passion fruit, grapefruit and lime on the nose. An excellent balance between crisp acidity and concentration with a long, clean finish.

Tasting Notes - Clear and bright with pale green and straw highlights. Fragrant and intense with passion fruit, grapefruit and lime on the nose. An excellent balance between crisp acidity and concentration with a long, clean finish. Winemaker Notes - Sixty percent of the fruit for Mount Nelson Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from the estate s vineyard, which is situated just 18 meters (60 feet) above sea level on the banks of Taylor River near the mouth of Cloudy Bay. The soil consists of free-draining alluvial loams over deep, stony river deposits. Thirteen hectares (32 acres) are planted to the single varietal, Sauvignon Blanc, using mass selected clones. The remaining fruit is purchased from the adjoining Meadowbank vineyard.
