Lilly Pilly 2008 Sauv Blanc

We headed up to Millcroft Inn for some rest and relaxation this past weekend. We discovered they have a lovely restaurant with a well stocked wine cellar. Jeff the manager there, a German fellow, was very knowledgeable in wines. They even had a Grüner Veltliner on the wine list. Impressive selection. I was having rare pan seared Tuna and my GF was having Pheasant so we wanted a white. From the list we narrowed it down to this one as one that was reasonably priced, we had not had and sounded interesting. The wine is pale in color as expected. On the nose all the usual citrus and grass one would expect from a Sauv Blanc. On the mid pallet are some mild grass, and lemon flavors. On the finish are some tart over tones that build as your drink. A very food friendly wine, but not an overwhelmy great Sauv blanc. I would give it an 87-88. Lilly Pilly Sauv Blanc

Here’s an image from the lovely Inn. We sat in the restaraunt overlooking the falls for breakfast. Very nice!
