Flying Sheep Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Flying Sheep Sauvignon Blanc 2012

A beautifully intense and lively wine, with melon, passionfruit and hints of gooseberry and lime.  The palate is mouth-filling and juicy with vibrant fruit and fantastic mid palate richness, concentration and weight. The finish is rich and racy with excellent length and crispness.

Raymond Chan, Wine reviews   ★★★

Bright straw-yellow colour, lighter on rim. This has a soft, light, straightforward bouquet with an array of herbs, nettles and steely white stonefruits. Dry to taste and light-medium bodied, zesty cool spectrum flavours of grassy fruit, nettles and fresh herbs form a taut and slender core. The palate has a light textured line with underlying crisp acidity. Savoury stonefruit, floral and herb notes emerge and carry through to a soft, dry finish. This is a light, grassy and dry- textured, simple Sauvignon Blanc. Match with Mediterranean fare over the next 18 months. 100% Sauvignon Blanc fruit from the ‘Osawa’ vineyard, fermented in stainless-steel to 13.4% alc. and 2 g/L RS. 16.0-/20
