Flying Sheep Hawke’s Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 28-Aug-2013
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 Aug 2013 RRP $20.00
