Coopers Creek Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2013
This is an acceptably crisp New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. Its not a special bottle but isn't bad for a Tuesday night.
A bit of burnt citrus and lima aromas. Juicy and fresh with some raw vegetable character.
vegetal aromas of asparagus and cooked peas which is interesting. much better on the palate which offers citrus fruits, a little round
very grassy and found it a bit flat - not sure if it was me or the wine. could have been me, given that I did not get a lot of fruit in the wine either (and others did).
Smells of a compost pile, asparagus. Tastes of creamed corn.
Went well with Pizza. Not too acidic.
Overall, a clean, well balanced wine. Grassy notes prevail where fruit character is quite reserved. I found this wine to be somewhat lacking in acidity, as well as the corresponding citrus in its flavor profile. Not what I would typically expect from a Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Not bad, but not my cup of tea -- erm, glass of wine.
External Reviews for Coopers Creek Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough
Many New Zealand whites are bottled with screw caps, including this wine, whose bright and juicy flavors donrsquo;t need to age to be enjoyed. Its grapes came from several sites in Marlboroughrsquo;s Wairau Valley, each vinified separately before being blended into a vivid mouthful of nectarine, grapefruit and quince backed by racy acidity.
Lean and tart, this wine shows notes of green pepper, herb and passion fruit at the core. Finishes crisp and citrusy, marrying lime and grapefruit.
Bright and tart, a zinger of a wine with citrus character presiding over other fruit intensity.
Softly juicy, with an elegant display of ripe pear, nectarine and citrus flavors. Features a terrific texture, and the intensity kicks in on the detailed finish. Drink now.
"Hey, hey, Coopers Creek win'ry Bouquet of passionfruit and gooseberry Make way, for Coopers Creek win'ry Grapefruit on the palate, with brisk acidity All alone, New Zealand stands Best Sauv Blanc in all the lands Classic Marlborough; a place you can't ignore This '09 is colored pale yellow-green With a delightful finish that is crisp and clean" This Sauvignon Blanc pairs well with most seafood, particularly oysters on the half shell, or ceviche; but I enjoy it most with either dolmades or sashimi and, of course, Neil Young (preferably Harvest, On The Beach or American Stars 'N Bars, given that these albums came out around the time Sauvignon Blanc was first planted in Marlborough). Drink now and often.
