The Windows Estate 2012 Sauvignon Blanc has a bit more complexity than most straight Sauvignon Blancs. Chris Davis uses a bit of barrel fermentation as well as keeping the juice on lees for a little longer.
On the nose there is the fresh Sauvignon Blanc herbaceousness, a good dollop of tropical passionfruit and ripe pineapple, and a nice floral lift. On the palate good acidity, and a balance of flavours between tropical fruit and grassy green pea. A bit of citrus pith grip and a fuller mouthfeel keeps things fresh and full.
This is a Sauvignon Blanc to think about, if that’s how you roll.
