Jackson Estate Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2007
Over a dozen parcels of Sauvignon Blanc are harvested and vinified separately at our state-of-the-art Marlborough winery, then blended to achieve Jackson Estate’s style; distinctive aromatics, intensely flavoured and lively fruit, refreshingly crisp acidity and a long flavoursome finish. This vintage displays aromas of rich tropical fruits, white currant and fresh basil that lead to a palate full in delivery, combining layers of fresh textured yellow fruits cut with finely balanced mineral tension.
Lightly oaked by the winery. Light melon aromas. Good medium acidity, lemon and melon flavors. Wonderful full mouthfeel, very crisp and disappears at the perfect time leaving me wanting more.
Don't let the fact that you're (like me) not always huge fan of Sauvignon blanc keep you from trying this. Beautiful balance of grapefruit, green pepper, slate; vivid concentration, nice complexity. One of my new favorite whites.
