Buitenverwachting Sauvignon Blanc Bayten 2017

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

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

Packed with ripe notes of melon, passion fruit and citrus, this wine sustains all of its roundness and weight with coastal freshness. It ends clean and bright, a lovely white for any fresh catch.

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.

Very solid, with a crunchy feel along the edges and pure white peach, flint and honeysuckle notes racing along. Drink now.
