2010 Sauvignon Blanc

TASTING NOTE

Colour: Bright straw green.

Bouquet: Refreshingly intense concentration of citrus, tropical fruits, fragrant fresh summer herbs, an appealing degree of minerality. 

Palate: Full bodied wine displaying excellent balance of fruit and acidity, fine citrus infused finish, a portion of indigenous ferment adding depth and richness. 

Food Match: Seafood – oysters, scallops, mussels, but also salads, white meats and mild cheeses. 

Cellaring: Ideally enjoyed young, but may be cellared for several years. 

Winemakers: James Healy / Ivan Sutherland.

REVIEWS

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Knockout, varietally expressive nose offers musky grapefruit peel, lemon, orange, tangerine, anise, pepper and tarragon. Densely packed and penetrating, with superb definition to the flavors of lemon, grapefruit, licorice and peppery herbs. Really pristine and uncompromising on the very long, spicy finish. 92/100
