Mirror Lake Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough
This Marlborough Mirror Lake Sauvignon Blanc Sauvignon seems to be trying to take the best of both the New World and the Old to come up with something a bit different; pale in the glass, on the nose, it is highly aromatic with cut grass and nettles, but on the palate it feels intense with a crisp acidity that is balanced by good minerality on the finish. The aromatic nose suggests something rather lusher and fleshier will follow, yet the palate is unexpectedly restrained and subtle, and impresses more with its focus and balanced, dry finish rather than through the kind of easy-drinking you might be led to expect from the nose. However, the end result works very well - focused, zippy and refreshing with lots of varietal aromas, this would match well with some classic goats cheese with aromatic and peppery rocket as a garnish.
