What’s in the glass tonight December 18th – Sauvignon Blanc

urlar-sb-2015

Urlar Sauvignon Blanc Gladstone 2015 – $$

Greenish straw colour. 13.5% alc. Organic wine.

This wine exhibited attractive fresh citrus, gooseberry, green apple on the nose. Less assertive with the whole Kiwi green-grass-tom-stalk-and-capsicum thing that Marlborough has going for it.

Soft mouthfeel and citrus flavours going in, and a sharp and short finish. Some oak ferment adds softness and complexity through the middle. A ‘6’  on the 0-10 Kiwi Savvy intensity scale.

Commended – 85 points
