Tohu Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Brilliant pale green this wine has an ebullient nose bursting with lemongrass, passionfruit and gooseberries with a touch of “sweaty” pungency. Very concentrated on the palate this wine has great depth of flavour being packed with ripe passionfruit, typical tomato leaf and herbal notes within a balanced framework of fresh acidity and minerality. Dry but with evident sweetness from ripe sweet fruit this wine is a great partner for fresh New Zealand shellfish and other kai moana.

Intense with plenty of cat pee, pineapple and a hint of jalapeño on the nose. Nice and bright. Fluid in the mouth if a touch dilute with classic gooseberry and cat pee flavors. Could use more stuffing but in the classic aromatic style. 86pts
