Wente Louis Mel Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Creamy tones emerge on the nose followed by subtly sweet layers of fresh herbs, grapefruit, cactus leaves, hints of figs, and pithy citrus notes. elegant on entry and seamless with some riverstones early on the palate followed by a rich, slightly creamy midpalate filled with nuanced herbal accents over a core of slightly candied pink grapefruit and fig flavors. There’s fine acids here, though they are nicely wrapped up in the fruit and the herbal edge pops on the backend and leads to a somewhat modest finish. Fairly complex and bright I do wish for a bit more length here. 88pts

star fruit, melon, and citrus aromas; floral, melon, citrus, touch of honey flavors; nice acidity, well-balanced, crisp finish. Music pairing suggestion for this wine was Brown Bird, but I'd pair this Sauvignon Blanc with Split Enz.

This Sauvignon Blanc has a beautiful straw color and aromas of guava, melon, gooseberry, citrus and pineapple. With crisp acidity and flavors of honeydew melon and pineapple, this wine delivers a creamy, refreshing finish.
