  • Margrain Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2014

The nose of this wine confidently announces its depth of character with a generous splash of lemon-straw colour. In the glass it opens with a hit of smashed honeydew cantaloupe and ripe Queensland pineapple alongside white fleshed nectarine, grapefruit zest and soothing notes of camomile tea. The aroma is upswept and inline yet it speaks of many things; like snips and snails and puppy dogs tails or long sticky apron strings. Dusty talcum powder and smoking gun oil add further interest and are rounded out by fresh fennel bulb, mashed butternut squash and a hint of pickled walnut.

The wine epitomises the tantalising crossover where sweetness and charm meets stroppiness and tang. Surprisingly full across the palate with green peach and crushed pineapple flavours, it slithers sideways before flowing onward courtesy of its juicy and turbulent acidity, to achieve an edgy balance like a size 4 model in baggy dungarees. Powerful and zesty, it has a breadth of flavour that could only be controlled by a roadside guardrail while the flesh and muscle sinews which are obvious beneath the taut skin are guaranteed to rock the DJ. In the finish a flinty edge and somewhat oily texture spread smoothness and calm to the ruffled back palate. Almost the perfect aperitif, this wine will definitely get your juices flowing!

This Sauvignon Blanc 2014 was released 16 May 2015, and will cellar well for 1-3 years.


Serving Suggestion
We believe our Sauvignon Blanc is best served at approximately 11 degrees Celsius.

Raymondchan Wine Review Sept 2015:

"Brilliant pale straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, lighter on rim. The nose is tight and a little shy, showing fresh, mouthwatering aromas of cut grass, green capsicums and nettles, along with herbal and subtle lantana nuances, the fruit in the cooler spectrum. Dryish to taste and medium-bodied, bright fruit flavours of grass and nettles are entwined with herbal elements and form a tight core with depth. The mouthfeel is crisp and brisk with refreshing acidity enlivening the fruit and driving the wine along a fine, phenolic, textural line. The palate carries to a long dry finish with some grip and fresh nettle and herb notes. This is a refreshingly crisp Sauvignon Bland with deep grassy and nettle-like fruit flavours. Serve with salads and vegetables, and Mediterranean fare over the next 2 years. Fruit from the ‘River Block’ and from the town vineyard fermented in stainless-steel to 11.8% alc. and 5.5 g/L RS."
