Bench 1775 Winery 2013 Sauvignon Blanc - 89pts
Availability: Direct from the winery here and VQA stores
Date Tasted: June 29th, 2014
Tasting Notes: Does everything you want an under-$20 Sauvignon Blanc to do: successfully blend together the tang of sweet citrus fruit, the pungent qualities of grass and the coolness of minerals. Add-in impressive concentration and length and you have a real winner.
The secret may be the 5% of Semillon included to add hints of tropical fruit to the mix of green apple, herbs, lemon grass and riverstone aromas and flavours. This wine will work both as a patio sipper and a companion to your favourite seafood dinner thanks to its generous mouth feel and light minerality. Drink now-2016.
