8. Yealands Sauvignon Blanc (2012)

Intense gooseberry and asparagus aromas greet the nose followed by notes of roasted chilies and very ripe pineapple. This is clean and fresh in the mouth with a lovely texture but the asparagus aromas are going to be off putting to many. Not terribly fruit driven, there are some nice green apple and over-ripe pineapple flavors on the mid palate and a fine mineral underlay on the fairly long finish with hints of greengage plums but the signature mark here is asparagus. I like the texture and freshness, and would recommend this if you’re serving asparagus but other wise be forewarned. 84pts
