O:TU 'blend 102' 2013 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 13%
There's plenty of Sauvignon Blanc choices from the OTU stable - this wine in particular though has a noticeable difference in the bouquet - it is more elegant and sophisticated with mineral, stone and sweet herbs in the bouquet - then all the vibrant Marlborough-esque aromas come punching through - ripe tropical fruits of pineapple, sweet passion fruit.
On the palate - dry, crisp and elegant with a wet stone and mineral quality followed by crisp red apple and sweet citrus flavors; some tropical too; a vegetal bell-pepper note; high acidity and an elegant edgyness - this is a wine I am happy to recommend.
Food friendly and will last through Summer 2015.
