Evans Tate & Breathing Space Margaret River Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Margaret River is capable of making truly beautiful wines from many varieties and this wine serves as a reminder that Sauvignon Blanc can be one of the most refreshing wine styles out there. Evans & Tate, in the heart of this maritime climate, has created a pure expressive example with refreshing acidity to make the perfect summer companion. Very pale and fresh colour – typical of young Sauvignon Blanc. Aroma: Lifted aromatics of lime zest, cut grass and passion fruit – fresh, bright and youthful nose driven by pure primary fruits. Palate: Tight, fresh and long with lovely lemon / lime zest acidity. The mid palate is fleshy and flavoursome with flavours of fig, citrus and crunchy green apple. Ready for drinking now or till 2015.

Melon and citrus aromas are light but pleasant, with mostly honeydew, lemon and clementine leading the charge. Flavors are fresh and grassy, lemon lime and more melon flavors are driving with some herbal notes to follow, mostly bay leaf and a touch of basil. Acidity is not overwhelming but certainly present. Clean, nice wine.
