Mount Nelson Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2017

Winemaker's Notes:

Pale yellow color with green highlights. Intense yet delicate nose with notes of lime and grapefruit and a hint of nettles. A crisp mineral texture with a fine and lingering finish. A classic vintage for Mount Nelson. This wine will complement all types of seafood and shellfish. Mount Nelson is the fulfillment of Lodovico Antinori's passion for Sauvignon Blanc. After years of experiments, Lodovico finally found his favorite terroir for the production of this grape in the area of Marlborough, New Zealand. Together with his winemaker, Helena Lindberg, they selected a vineyard that is ideal for the production of the wine that Lodovico had pursued for so long. The result is a remarkable Sauvignon Blanc that brings together the natural elements and flavors of the New World with a structure and minerality reminiscent of the Old World.

91 Points Wine Spectator:`Light and fragrant, this delivers a juicy mouthful of lemon-accented grapefruit and pear flavors, persisting nicely with a mineral note on the lively finish.`

Bold at first, with passion fruit and funky flavors, with a very clean and crisp, citrus-like finish. Embodies all my favorite characteristics of a Marlborough Sauv Blanc.

I really like Mt. Nelson! It's got some of the subtlety of good white burgundy; less citrus than many other Kiwi SBs. It's not cheap, but I've found it in the $13-15 range by shopping carefully, and once for $11 ib close out.

Nose: The first thing that hit me was a lot of passionfruit/mango-y-ness. Maybe a little kiwi. I have read about a "celery" note in some reviews of Sauv. blancs, and I think I may know what they are talking about here. Taste - Lime-y, lemongrass-y, kinda floral. A hint of celery Finish - almost a sweet and sour type of finish without the bite and a bit of saltiness. I quite like this wine.

Clear and bright with pale green and straw highlights. Fragrant and intense with passion fruit, grapefruit and lime on the nose. An excellent balance between crisp acidity and concentration with a long, clean finish.

Tasting Notes - Clear and bright with pale green and straw highlights. Fragrant and intense with passion fruit, grapefruit and lime on the nose. An excellent balance between crisp acidity and concentration with a long, clean finish. Winemaker Notes - Sixty percent of the fruit for Mount Nelson Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from the estate s vineyard, which is situated just 18 meters (60 feet) above sea level on the banks of Taylor River near the mouth of Cloudy Bay. The soil consists of free-draining alluvial loams over deep, stony river deposits. Thirteen hectares (32 acres) are planted to the single varietal, Sauvignon Blanc, using mass selected clones. The remaining fruit is purchased from the adjoining Meadowbank vineyard.

Bright pale yellow. Pungent aromas of grapefruit, pepper, anise and flowers. Juicy, dense and intense, with excellent penetration to the grapefruit, soft citrus and fresh herb flavors. As dry and bracing as this is, there's solid palate-coating textu... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Sauvignon Blanc wine from Marlborough in New Zealand. 2009 Mount Nelson Sauvignon Blanc 750ml

A fabulous value, the 2004 Sauvignon Blanc explodes from the glass with exquisitely ripe gooseberries. Expansive and boldly-flavored, this medium-bodied, silky-textured effort is resplendent in layers of pink grapefruit, gooseberries, and spices. It has terrific mouth-feel and a long fruit-filled finish. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.
