Ohau Gravels Sauvignon Blanc 2011-2

Ohau Gravels Sauvignon Blanc 2011 – $$

I’ve written this before but I really like this wine. Good to have another bottle to see how another year has treated it.

It is starting the slow slide south, but on the plus side is showing pleasant age characters. For a start the wine is a lovely green gold colour. Open airy bouquet of pears and pink grapefruit and even Turkish delight. A feeling of sunshine and rain.

Ripe citrus on palate. Dry. Good weight and structure and acidity for this varietal.Not aggressively wince-y or grassy, which I like.  A wine suited for food or as an aperitif. 4

Stop off at the cellar door this side of Levin, people, and buy.
