Enjoyable Sauvignon Blanc. Floral flavours, combined with citrus and tropical fruits. Smooth long finish. Very nice. Tasted February 2012.

A mix of herbal and mineral notes on the nose, but it's more delicate than modern for Sauvignon and the reason I place Pouilly-Fumé at the top of the style category for this variety. A lively citrus palate showing grapefruit, lime, and dry chalky mineral notes. It finishes with a hint of mild spice. Tasted Feb 2012.
