Morton Estate Colefield Sauvignon Blanc

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
The Colefield vineyard is near, but slightly more elevated than, the company's Riverview vineyard at Mangatahi. Partly oak-fermented and lees-aged, the 2000 vintage is a ripe, rounded, tropical fruit style, soft and full on the palate, with good balance and length.

Michael Cooper (1998 Vintage) says
Maturing well, the 1997 vintage was grown in Morton Estate's Colefield vineyard at Mangatahi, near its famous Riverview vineyard, and 25 per cent of the final blend was barrel-fermented. Attractively scented, it's a pale, delicate, clearly varietal wine with very good depth of melon/capsicum flavour and a fractionally off-dry, finely balanced finish. The 1998 has a slightly toasty bouquet, with good weight and depth of tropical fruit flavours, a touch of complexity and tight finish.
