You probably wont see much written about Sauvignon Blanc on Que Syrah. Potentially out of wine-snobbery, but also out of wine boredom. We see so many, with so little variation on the ‘cats pee on a gooseberry bush’ theme. Not so with wines like Singlefile Fume Blanc.
The Singlefile Fume Blanc shows aromas of lovely fresh characters, not so much capsicum (as you see with so many Sauvignon Blancs) more fresh spring peas, green apple. Pleasant and subtle tropical pineapple, and mandarin citrus. All restrained by careful oak handling, also adding a little touch of warm spice.
On the palate the body of the Singlefile Fume Blancs shows a touch of fullness, and the acid is balanced with gentle richness. Ripe stonefruit and citrus, with some unripe pineapple.
This is a Sauvignon Blanc for grownups, and shows more restraint and complexity than your usual Kiwi offering. The Singlefile Fume Blanc can even handle richer dishes like roast chicken or roast pumpkin risotto.
