Winery Tasting Notes
Estate Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc ‘12 has a pale straw colour with green lights.
Lovely aromas of lemongrass and coriander lend an exotic note to lime, passionfruit and blackcurrant leaf characters.
The palate is crisp and mouth-filling, with fresh acidity providing a fine structure to a long, dry, mineral finish.
Estate Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc ‘12 is best served chilled, either as a refreshing pre-dinner glass of wine, or with salads, seafood dishes, and lightly spiced Asian foods.
It can be enjoyed immediately upon release and will continue to develop in bottle for two years from harvest.
