Elaboration of Tokomaru Sauvignon Blanc 2017
Tokomaru Sauvignon Blanc 2017 (Sauvignon Blanc)
- View: A faintly golden white.
- Nose: A well-balanced crisp, fresh sensation accentuated by the citrus hints of grapefruit. Not over-the-top.
- Mouth: Fruity, tropical tones are well accented by a dry, crisp taste on the tongue. Grassy notes and elderflower can be detected, keeping this wine from becoming too sweet. It is a sensation that matches the earth and sea blend of its New Zealand home.
VINEYARD: Tokomaru Bay.
GRAPES: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
AGEING: A young wine.
PREPARATION: The balance of this young yet well-defined wine reflects the region from which it was born. Hot days and cool nights allow for the unique pairing of flavours to come to life in the product. Produced in the celebrated Marlborough region of New Zealand, this Sauvignon Blanc stands its own and celebrates its heritage without being over boisterous. Classically prepared, both new tasters unfamiliar with the region and seasoned Marlborough wine connoisseurs will appreciate this frank and pleasant product.
PAIRING: Excellent with seafood, especially shellfish like scallops or oysters with white sauce. Sweet, tropical fruits like kiwi or passion fruit will be accentuated in flavour by the lingering yet pleasing dryness of this wine, which elegantly mixes sweet with bitter. Sweet summer fruits such as peaches and apricots will pair well on their own or when used in cooking to compliment this zesty Sauvignon Blanc.
RECOMMENDED SERVING TEMPERATURE: 6-8°C
