Editorial Reviews for Fairview Sauvignon Blanc
Yeasty at first with a perfumed nose that starts off with pineapple notes that with air gain a floral edge and some lovely lemon oil notes with a melon/pumpkin base note. A bit of rs on the leading edge perhaps is smacked by ferociously delicious acidity. This has some nice weight in the mouth with a solid core of rather apply fruit and that wicked acidity that flails around one’s mouth like a razorblade in a hurricane. The finish is fairly long and intense with all that apply goodness edged with a touch of orange and peach. This is one zesty wine and I love it.. A touch simple but exploding with exuberance
The 2010 wines are showing that the vintage is not quite as robust as 2009, the wines are more focussed and generally tighter. The 2010 wines are showing a combination of fruit, minerality and freshness. Overall the wines are softer and more delicate. Anthony de Jager
Pale colour in the glass. Lively green apple and lemon-lime aromas with a hint of minerality on the nose. Fresh, yet delicate fruit flavours are balanced with fullness on the palate and leads to a citrus burst on the finish.
