A very determined expression of sauvignon blanc that shows off the dry grass, lemon and green apple on the nose. The methoxypyrazine compounds that give the perception of nettle or bell pepper become more pronounced as the wine has time to breathe. Structured acidity, in balance with the alcohol and flavours. Lemon-lime, green pepper, and herbaceous. Good length. Apr 2011.
