This crisp, zesty Sauvignon Blanc displays textbook aromas and flavors of green fig, gooseberry and lime. Grassy herbal notes are supported by elegant underpinnings of mineral and chalk.
This has all the notes of a racy, cut-filled Sauvignon Blanc, with distinctive Meyer lemon, kaffir lime, bitter grapefruit and gooseberry flavors, but it's allied to an underlying richness that lets flashes of persimmon and rosewater flash on the finish. Very long. Impressive. Drink now through 2014.
Pale yellow. Raw pineapple, grapefruit zest, pepper and a whiff of gooseberry on the very pure nose. At once broad and penetrating; a serious young sauvignon with dominant flavors of pepper and minerals. The wine's fruit is currently in the background, but lovely ripe acidity and sneaky dusty length suggest that this will be better for another year or so of bottle aging.
