Pale in color with a mild citrus nose. On the mid palate the wine displays citrus and lemony notes to match the nose. Straight out of the fridge the wine was too cold and the finish was on the lighter side. As the wine warmed up it displays some lovely zest and crisp acidity. There’s some nice mouth grip with the minerality lingering and building in the mouth. A nice wine for sure but watch your serving temperature.

Wither Hills Sauvignon Blanc 2013 — VINTAGES#: 919514
STYLE – Aromatic & Flavourful
For the price, this is remarkably concentrated, with ample weight and intense flavors. It’s more subdued on the nose, offering just hints of struck flint and grapefruit, but the citrusy flavors surge forward, culminating in a long, grapefruity finish. Special Designation: Best Buy. Score – 90. (Joe Czerwinski, Wine Enthusiast, July 2014) $19.95
