Craggy Range Winery Sauvignon Blanc 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"Fermented 12% in oak barriques with four months resting on the fine lees, the 2009 Te Muna Road Sauvignon Blanc has a light grassy nose with touches of gooseberry and fresh green apples. The palate is well balanced with vibrant green fruit..." WA 10/10

Very sweetly fruited on the nose with hints of mint, vanilla, and mineral accenting the honeydew melon and peach fruit. Soft and surprisingly not fruity in the mouth, with firm mineral notes that are balanced by herbal tones and a touch of nectarine. This turns very perfumed on the finish and is an unusually elegant example of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. 90pts

Must have been a bad bottle, as I did not care for this at all. Very tart, acidic and harsh. Sequoia DC Dec 2013,

Winemaker's notes: Pale greenish straw in color. Rich aromatics of fresh lime juice, elderflower, lemongrass, grilled citrus and ripe nectarine. Complex and intriguing. The palate is concentrated and dense, yet retains remarkable linearity and focus. Zesty citrus, stone fruit, herb and floral flavors fill the mouth, a fine chalky mineral texture tightens and focuses the finish. The wine finishes long and powerful, crisp, clean and dry.

Very pale, green tinged colour. Aromatics ofgrapefruit, bay leaf, fresh herbs and nectarine. The palate has an interplay of citrus and herb flavours, cool natural acidity and a fine, slightly waxy texture
