Wild Rock Sauvignon Blanc Elevation 2010

External Review by We Speak Wine:

Pale straw in colour streaked with green hues. Aromatically, gentle welcoming Sauvignon fruit characters such as lime, grapefruit and gooseberry and a lean complexity with exotic floral notes such as rose and honeysuckle. On the palate the cool climate acidity and vibrant fruit flavours are coated in a pleasantly rich layered texture and long spring-flower finish. - WineryVariety:86% Sauvignon Blanc10% Riesling4% ViognierAlcohol: 13.9%Residual Sugar: 3.5 g/lpH: 3.19Acidity: 7.0 g/l

The wine has aromas of fresh lime juice, stone fruits and herbs. On the palate, lime, nectarine, grapefruit, floral and apple flavors are rich and rounded with bright citrus-edged acidity leading to a clean, dry finish.
