This is lemon-gold, almost rich in colour for such a young Sauvignon. The nose borders on pungent with nettles/herbs, citrus, light floral notes and a touch of melon. It has a fresh but full, rounded palate with classic mineral/herbs, citrus and white peach with a very persistent clean mineral aftertaste. This wine is delicious with salads and luncheons now, but don't be fooled - it is also a wine for ther long haul. It is hard for me to say this, but it is regrettably our last Sauvignon. Of all the vines this has the shortest life expectancy in our type of climate. We first planted Sauvignon in 1979 and this block dates from about 1982. It will eventually be replaced with Pinot gris.
