I have an announcement to make. I’ve decided to admit I like Sauvignon Blanc.
To clarify that, certain styles of Sauvignon Blanc. This style of Sauvignon Blanc.
I’ve also tried three (so far) from the Adelaide Hills made by Guthrie, Chain of Ponds and Main & Cherry, and a couple of Tasmanian fumé blancs that have hit the mark for me.
Anyway, I really liked this Sauvignon. Even at 6 years of age, for me this wine still had some juicy pear flavours whereas my wife thought it was tropical fruit/fruit salad like. But it was the texture, richness and length that surprised me and it was quite viscous too. The thing that pleased me about the wine was there was no sweetness or acid poking out.
A beautifully balanced, scrumptious wine that I would buy. There you go, I said it.
