Description · Mount Nelson

2008 Mount Nelson Sauvignon Blanc (Sauvignon Blanc)

Sixty percent of the fruit for Mount Nelson Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from the estate's vineyard, which is situated just 60 feet above sea level on the banks of Taylor River near the mouth of Cloudy Bay. The soil consists of free-draining

alluvial loams over deep, stony river deposits. Thirty-two acres are planted to the single varietal, Sauvignon Blanc, using mass selected clones. The remaining fruit is purchased from the adjoining Meadowbank vineyard.

Clear and bright with pale green and straw highlights. Intense flavors or lime, grapefruit and apple are balanced with a creaminess, crisp acidity and concentration. Its long finish hints at lime and grapefruit.

Monunt Nelson 2013
The normal colour, deep yellow. In my opinion, the Monunt Nelson smelled like mango, banana and pear. Cool and pleasant.
I accompanied it with gnocchi.
A wine to enjoy with a friend.
