Aronui SV Sauvignon Blanc 2012 Nelson 13%
N: A fruit centred beginning followed quite quickly by a vegetal (bell pepper) and herbaceous layer – not too intense; a flinty/stony mineral-like quality follows, with a hint of spice.
P: Plenty of ripe fruit flavours with a mix of tropical and citrus; suggestions of green apple skin. The herbaceous notes return. Acidity is high and focused, keeping the wine youthful and crisp – balanced by the fruit core. Moderate length an complexity; balanced, youthful still and quite well made with a dry finish.
