Excelsior Estate Sauvignon Blanc Robertson 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This is overtly fruity on the nose with an almost red fruited character to the berry nose. Lots of trapped CO2 adds a light spritz on entry, which helps liven the palate. There’s a fair amount of fruit here, even if it is simple. Subtle mineral and herb nuances finish strongly along with a nice lime pith character on the finale. 85pts
