Voss Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

The Voss Sauvignon Blanc displays classic varietal aromas, flavor and texture. Aromas of lemon peel, grapefruit and pineapple combine with a hint of spice and mineral, leading to a delightful combination of intense and exotic fruit flavors across the palate. The wine shows a lovely fullness in the palate from the skin contact before pressing and the lingering finish is bright and crisp. Not yet reviewed; 2011 vintage rated 90 points by both Connoisseurs' Guide and Wine Spectator.

Voss Estate Vineyard is a family owned producer in the wine village of Martinborough - just one hour's drive from Wellington, the capital of New Zealand. Established in 1986 by Pinot noir enthusiasts Annette & Gary Voss, their highly focused approach remains hands-on, from managing the vineyards through to making and marketing the wines. In true family style, Gary’s family helped to plant the vineyard in 1988. Gary & Annette have since planted another vineyard entirely in Pinot noir to help meet the demand for Martinborough Pinot. Gary & Annette's wine producing philosophy has been to establish the brand name, “Voss Estate”, at the premium high quality end of the local and global wine market. They have been making award winning wines full of character since 1991. Gary studied wine making at Charles Sturt University in Australia and worked four vintages in New Zealand before producing wine from Voss Estate. Prior to this he spent a year working for a prestigious wine distributor to gain experience in wine sales and marketing. He also oversees the vineyards. Annette now manages sales and marketing and in her spare time tends the vineyard. Her background includes fisheries research (where she met Gary) and human resources. Read less

This is intensely aromatic with assertive aromas of cut grass, grapefruit, lime and an underlying roasted chili note. Light bodied and beautifully balanced, this is perhaps a touch softer in the mouth than I might prefer but at the same time it’s subtle and ethereal delivering finely balanced grapefruit, green chili and green cardamom spice notes on the palate and through the long finish. A bit simple perhaps but with lovely clarity and freshness.  87pts

A little smoky and decidedly grassy on the nose which is pungent and kind of precise with its fine quince and grapefruit aromas. Just a touch diffuse on entry, this is bright and tart on the palate with subtly layered flavors of green herbs, green citrus zest and ripe apple fruit. This is almost silky in the mouth and the balance makes this seem deceptively simple but this is a very complete, subtle bottle that will prove too subtle for some but for my palate this is a great summer sipper. The finish is long and sapid, with a salty edge to the lemon rind flavors. this is delicious. 89ps
