Date Tasted: July 13th, 2014
Tasting Notes: A well balanced, straight-forward Sauvignon Blanc that finds a happy milieu between the pungent and tangy examples of the variety from New Zealand and the aromatic, easy-drinking versions often produced in warmer climates. Green apple, lime rind, Bosc pear and gooseberry fruit grace the pleasant and engaging nose. The palate offers similar flavours with added stonefruit notes, but, the star of the show is the juxtaposition of, seemingly, competing textures by way of tangy effervescence and round, lees-y characters which resolve nicely to create a compelling mouth feel and decent length. Drink now-2016.
