Gem Wines

Gem Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2007
Don't let the vintage of this wine trick you into thinking it's past it's best, frankly quite the opposite!
N: A bouquet that reflects a wine that is becoming fully integrated; the fruit profile includes golden kiwi fruit, sweet pear and hints of stone fruit with peach being the most obvious. After several more swirls of the glass a sweet hay suggestion emerges. Overall moderately complex.
P: Crisp and dry with an herbaceous attack quickly followed by the flavors of kiwi fruit, white pear and peach then a crisp red apple note. A lovely silky texture with a lingering velvet finish. 4.5 Stars
