THE SUPERNATURAL SAUVIGNON BLANC - 2009
13.5% alcohol. 100% Estate grown Hawkes Bay Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand.
Golden yellow color with highly aromatic honeysuckle, pineapple and passion fruit. Citrus, minerality and crisp upfront with notes of petrol, sweet lychee and honey on the finish.
SCORE & RECOMMENDATION:
Pretty sensational Sauvignon Blanc. Can't think of any SB I've had with the exception of the Merry Edwards that is so vibrant and dynamic. Has a Sauternes-esque aspect to the wine and sets itself apart from the traditional New Zealand SB. Beer bottle crown cap closure in a clear bottle makes for a sleek, casual look, but there's serious juice inside.
