A Sauvignon Blanc wine from Marlborough in New Zealand. 2010 Isabel Estate Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 750ml
Straw colored, the understated aromas reveal hints of lemon blossom, pound cake and subtle herbal notes. Very creamy on the palate, the broad textures are of medium weight and are infused with lemon flavors. There's almost a thick textural component ... Chuck Hayward. A Sauvignon Blanc wine from Marlborough in New Zealand. 2010 Isabel Estate Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 750ml
The 2012 vintage saw its challenges in late spring with frosts affecting flowering, but the low yields were obviously to our advantage. Flavours explode from the glass! Intense lime and citrus, exotic fruit and floral notes... The palate is lively, but manages a smooth & round delivery' while exuding tropical fruit, tangy citrus and minerality. This is a bright, crisp and fresh Sauvignon Blanc, but in keeping with the Isabel style it offers good palate weight while maintaining balance and finesse. Certainly enjoyable in its youth, this wine will continue to develop in years to come. Not yet reviewed; 2011 vintage rated 90 points by International Wine Cellar: Pale yellow. Musky aromas of grapefruit pith and pepper lifted by limestone, with a subtle vegetal nuance contributing complexity. Rich, ripe and round but firm, thanks to solid underlying minerality. Nicely concentrated, smooth sauvignon with a long, gripping finish.
