    Winemaker's Notes:

    The wine has a pale lemon yellow color and a bouquet reminiscent of green figs with hints of gooseberries and hints of green peppers. The wine is dry, full bodied and has a long lingering finish.

    Long referred to as "Bayten" by locals, Buitenverwachting changed their label in 2012 to reflect their new official name of Bayten. While now called Bayten, this is still the Buitenverwachting Sauvignon Blanc you've always enjoyed.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Ripe but well-focused, with straw, white peach, kiwifruit pulp and pink grapefruit notes all wound together and extending through the well-defined finish. Very solid, this should mellow with modest cellaring.

    Very pleasant. Loved the green notes, always my favorite in a Sauvignon Blanc. Delicate bouquet, but a tad bit heavy on the alcohol content. Strong but enjoyable linger.

    I find this Sauvignon Blanc from Bayten odd, to say the least. It clearly has merit with its delicate fruit flavor, creamy texture, and spices, but the whole endeavor seems sullied by its unfaithfulness to the grape. This is a Sauvignon Blanc attempting to masquerade as a high alcohol (14%), heavily oaked california chardonnay. In the 15-25 price range, you are much better off with NZ offerings like Greywacke or even Astrolabe. Or if you want this style, just buy a cali chardonnay!
