Te Muna Sauvignon Blanc 2008 - Craggy Range: Te Muna Sauvignon Blanc 2008 - Weißwein von Craggy RangeDas helle Strohgelb wird von einigen fröhlichen Schattierungen, die grünlich schimmern, untermalt. Das üppige Bukett vereint fruchtige Noten von Nektarinen, Guave, Feijoa mit würzigen und floralen Nuancen. Die Blüten wirken sehr kraftvoll und geben eine wunderbare Frische und Komplexität. Am Gaumen präsentiert sich der Te Muna Sauvignon Blanc 2008 von Craggy Range sehr dicht mit Aromen von Pampelmuse und Steinfrüchten, die von Kalk und anderen mineralischen Tönen durchzogen werden. Dieser Wein ist sehr kraftvoll und erfreut mit einem nicht enden wollenden Finale, lebhaft und klar. Der Te Muna Sauvignon Blanc ist ein perfekter Aperitif, passt aber auch gut zu Meeresfrüchten und Geflügel.Weingut: Craggy RangeLand: NeuseelandRegion: Marlborough Rebsorte: 100% Sauvignon BlancInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 13,25 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 7,0 g/lRestsüße: 1,25 g/lLagerfähigkeit: 2-4 Jahre ab JahrgangEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 6-8 °C Weißwein > Neuseeland > Marlborough

The storms that hit Marlborough in April 2008 headed out to sea, missing Martinborough. So winemaker Adrian Baker says there was no rain pressure during harvest at Craggy Range, where the 2008 ripened to rich passion fruit flavors. Baker allowed a third of the wine to ferment with indigenous yeast, and fermented a small portion (12 percent) in barrel. The result is a potent, generous saivignon with lasting spice and saturated fruit flavor. Decant it for crab. With fruit sourced from Martinborough, the 2008 Te Muna Road Sauvignon Blanc has a very well defined, very pure nose with just a touch of chalkiness coming through, complemented with a faint hint of greengage. The palate is neutral on the entry - this Sauvignon is more about poise and freshness with subtle notes of green apple, lime and orange-blossom towards the finish. Excellent. Pale, bright yellow. Pungent aromas of lime, green apple, quinine and tarragon. Almost silky on entry, then quite taut, even austere, in the middle, showing a mineral pungency to its grapefruit pith, lemon zest and fresh herb flavors. Dry and bracing but not quite hard. Finishes with good aromatic lift and persistence. Still, this rather uncompromising wine is almost painful today and could use another six months of patience. While the leafy, nettley notes provide Sauvignon's trademark herbaceousness, this wine's ample weight and slightly creamy texture provide a gentler counterpoint that should make the wine exceptionally versatile at the table. Grapefruit flavors finish long, with gentle herbal overtones. - J.C. A bit green, with herbal flavors prominent, but lively enough with citrus and tart apple flavors to keep it rolling. Drink now. 10,000 cases imported. -HS

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Pale straw with green hints. The aromas are of white peach, citrus and delicate tropical fruits. The mouth filling palate is awash with flavors of fresh apple, nectarine, lime and tropical notes. The flavors are underlined by fine supporting acidity and a chalky texture that leads into a very long, rich and clean lime and passionfruit finish.
