Arabella Sauvignon Blanc 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Yellow green in colour. Complex green grassy nose with passion fruit, guava and pear aromas. Gooseberry, capsicum and tropical flavours on a full, rich palate with a long sweet-fruited finish.

Without the benefit of food - garlic infused or otherwise - the wine is rather 'green'. Alcohol 13.5%. Look for a mix of fruits verging on the under-ripe side of things - guava, apples, asparagus and so on. Expect a little tartrate crystal deposit too. It's on the finish where the greenness manifests with a burst of lime tartnes to help it along. http://www.spittoon.biz/arabella_sauvignon_blanc_2008.html
