Picton Bay Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Member Review by Zuiko:

This is the first 2012 Sauv Bl I've had from NZ and I hope it is not the harbinger of the vintage. The nose is nice with pungent gooseberry and gardenia flowers. The flavors are nowhere near as nice as the nose though. A bit dilute tasting with minimal extract and excess acid make for a so-so wine experience. Short finish- little fruit. Tasted again after one day of air- much better -- It opens up. My initial rating - 80 After air- 84

Nice gooseberry flavors but not nearly strong enough to be considered a high-end Sauv. It's light and won't offend many.
