What’s in the glass tonight Feb 26th – Sauvignon Blanc

Palliser SB 15

Palliser Estate Sauvignon Blanc Martinborough 2015 – $$

Time to down tools after a long work week!

Lightest greenish straw. 13% alc.

Delicate bouquet; a waft of green apple, Turkish delight, and capsicum across the nostrils.

Soft in the mouth too, agreeable ripeness, less acidity than I might expect, perhaps a bit too soft and light, it taste like there is some oak handling, but surely not. This is lacking the usual Kiwi Sav flavour horsepower. Typical for North Island examples, but not to this degree. Could be sharper.
