Matua Sauvignon Blanc 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Marlborough is situated at the Northern end of the South Island of New Zealand. The climate is warm and dry with cool night temperatures that contribute to the zingy freshness the wines exhibit.

Paretai remains a bit of an extreme style, giving even more herbaceous and grassy flavors than many N.Z. Sauvignons. Itrsquo;s leaner, drier and more focused as well, with passion fruit upfront and strident lime notes on the finish.

Emphasizing the green scents that often typify young Marlborough sauvignon, this has enough mouthwatering acidity to cut through oysters with cregrave;me fraicirc;che.

Brothers Bill and Ross Spence planted the North Bank vineyard only a few years ago, in rocky soils just past the Wairau River in Marlborough. Paretairsquo;s grapes come from a section of the vineyard that ripens about two weeks earlier than the rest. The resulting wine packs an impressive amount of zingy flavor into a racy frame, making it the top-scoring Kiwi Sauvignon Blanc for two years in a row.

Sourced from Marlborough. A very fine nose with good delineation, good minerality with touches of limestone, lime and apple. Nice lift and perfume. The palate is finely balanced, minerally, just lacking a touch of tension but very good length and an attractive kiwi fruit tinged finish. Very fine. Drink nowndash;2010.
