Neck of the Woods Winery 2011 Backyard Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc - 85pts

Neck of the Woods Winery 2011 Backyard Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc (Okanagan Valley) - BC

Availability: Direct from winery here and VQA stores
Cost: $17.99
Alcohol: 13.1%
Date Tasted: July 6th, 2012

Tasting Notes: This Sauvignon Blanc opens with a fresh nose of grass, unripe mango, cantaloupe and light grapefruit aromas. The crisp, tangy yet watery palate follows with pear, lemon/lime and grapefruit flavours. The finish ends a bit abruptly and "hot" as the concentration of the flavours doesn't completely balance the alcohol. Drink now-2013.
