Buitenverwachting Bayten Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

"Ripe but well-focused, with straw, white peach, kiwifruit pulp and pink grapefruit notes all wound together and extending through the well-defined finish. Very solid, this should mellow with modest cellaring. Drink now through 2015...90" WS 3/13

Rather herbal and soil driven on the nose with chalky aromas complimenting the base of dried bay leaves and nettles framing delicate fig and kiwi fruit notes that pick up a hint of pear with air. Soft, broad and transparent in the mouth, this is tangy and tart. Transparent if a touch fat around the edges on the palate, there’s a lovely directness to the green tinged citrus flavors and a hint of something vaguely sweet trying to cover the vibrant acidity. A touch mineral on the backend with a burst of kiwi fruit appearing before this segues to a tight, slightly white peppery and pith pineapple toned finish. people are going to love this. I find it attractive but wish it had a touch more nervous focus on the palate. Still, I’d be happy to drink this. 90pts

Ripe but well-focused, with straw, white peach, kiwifruit pulp and pink grapefruit notes all wound together and extending through the well-defined finish. Very solid, this should mellow with modest cellaring.
