Sileni Estates Cellar Selection Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Member Review by NiagaraWiner:

An extremely fragrant NZ Sauvignon Blanc. Strong hints of apricot and fresh cut grass on the nose. The palate is very round, smooth with juicy acidity and nice citrus, gooseberry and papaya notes. Finish is pleasing and subtle with lingering citrus notes. A very well crafted wine that will compliment light seafood dishes or spicy thai. Can as easily be enjoyed on its own. Best white wine of the year (thus far).

Very uninteresting fruit driven wine. Much sweeter than I like and though a nice mouthfeel, I would appreciate more acid.

Ripe tropical and gooseberry fruit flavors with a zingy finish and impeccable balance. A great aperitif or seafood wine made for drinking young.

This New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc offers everything we look for in a fresh white from this neck of the woods. It is lightly herbaceous, with upfront gooseberry fruit, juicy acidity, and perfect ripeness. While this is a dry wine, it is absolutely packed to the brim with fruit.

This New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc offers everything we look for in a fresh white from this part of the world. Grassy, gooseberry upfront fruit, juicy acidity and ripeness. This is a dry white wine but it's packed with fruit on the palate.
