Selaks Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough Premium Selection 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Valued clients, this is as straightforward as it gets: another very nice Marlborough, New Zealand sauvignon blanc showing telltale pink grapefruit and other citrus aromas with lime and green apple flavors leading to a refreshing finish.

When Marino Selak first arrived in New Zealand from his native Croatia in 1906, there were a few things missing. Apart from olive oils and the traditional Croatian food, it seemed that wine was in seriously short supply. Back in Croatia, wine was the centre of the table that brought families and friends together - part of everyday life. So Marino decided to create his own by buying some land for a market garden, orchards and vineyard, unwittingly creating a wine that would become a world favourite. 34 years later and the Selaks wine had become so popular in the local Auckland community that Marino asked his relatives in Croatia for help. Perhaps lured by the prospect of growing wine in the fields of New Zealand as opposed to going to war, Marino’s nephew, Mate Selak, sailed to New Zealand on a one way ticket at the tender age of 16. He must have enjoyed his new home because by the time Mate was 23, he had purchased the land from his uncle and had begun experimenting with champagne style wine. The wine brought a taste of Europe to the country and was instantly popular. However, the government confiscated the Selaks’ land to build a new motorway. Read less

Lots of vegetal characters - asparagus, cut peppers. A bit fruity. A bit tart. Dry, with medium body. Intense flavours of fruit and vegetals. High acidity.

Look carefully at batch numbers on rear label. Though some batches would rate 5 batch L9177 17:40 is not even 1 glass

Premium Sauvignon Blanc 2008 - Selaks : Premium Sauvignon Blanc 2008 - Weißwein von Selaks WinesGrüngelb schimmert dieser Sauvignon Blanc im Glas und verströmt einen fruchtigen Duft nach Kiwi, Stachelbeeren und Passionsfrucht. Am Gaumen präsentiert der Premium Sauvignon Blanc 2008 Selaks Wines eine frische Säure, die perfekt in den mittelkräftigen Körper integriert ist. Angenehm lang verbleibt diese Frische  im Mund, der erneut von Stachelbeere und Kiwi sowie Holunder verwöhnt wird. Dazu gesellen sich Passionsfrucht und ein Hauch Cassis. Dieser Wein wirkt sehr gut strukturiert, nicht überladen und hinterlässt ein harmonisches Mundgefühl. Besonders zu empfehlen ist der Sauvignon Blanc zu Jakobsmuscheln mit Pasta und zu Hähnchen mit Zitronenmarinade.Weingut: Selaks WinesLand: NeuseelandRegion: Marlborough Rebsorte: 100% Sauvignon BlancInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 13,0 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 7,0 g/lRestsüße: trockenLagerfähigkeit: 2-4 Jahre ab JahrgangEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 6-8 °C Weißwein > Neuseeland > Marlborough

Established in 1934, Selaks introduced the classic peppery-gooseberry style of New Zealand Sauvignon to the world. A rich and powerful style featuring intense grapefruit and green peppercorn flavors and aromas, against a backdrop of crisp acidity.

Tight, taut and tart, trying to be refined, with modest green apple and herb flavors that echo nicely. Drink now through 2004.

Punchy mixture of gooseberry and melon on the nose, generously backed up with suggestions of zesty lemon and passion fruit. Crisp and elegant with a long, tangy finish.
