Spy Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Spy Valley is the name the locals call the Waihopai Valley, because of the large communications monitoring complex located amongst the vineyards. There is nothing secretive about Spy Valley wines though. This sauvignon blanc has really generous fruit and an excellent texture, which is balanced nicely with the pungent passionfruit and grapefruit bouquet. Another delicious sauvignon blanc from the classic Marlborough region.

Pale straw in color. Classic Marlborough aromas of grapefruit, elderflower and a fusion of tropical fruits. Crisp and fine with a silken mouthfeel. Pure fruit flavors persist through a dry finish. Pair with roasted chicken, light pasta dishes or Manchego cheese. Food pairing: pasta, poultry, seafood Flavor type: fruit-forward Body type: light-medium Finish: crisp

Pale, bright yellow-green. Cool aromas of lime peel, grapefruit, dusty stone, fresh herbs and pepper. Juicy and moderately intense, with a peppery quality to the soft citrus and tropical fruit flavors. Some unabsorbed CO2 gives the wine a brisk impression today. Finishes with a slightly raw, tart-edged note of white grapefruit but also a hint of sweetness. A good effort for the vintage.

The succulent green apple, passion fruit and lime peel flavors are showcased here, with mineral and floral details matched to a light and extremely refreshing body. Drink now.
