Pale straw in color with an odd nose, kinda like cats pee. I’ve heard this referred to before, but this one actually has it. On the mid palate the wine displays some tart acidity and citrus notes. There’s a hint of sweetness that’s above what you’d expect from 4g/l. This isn’t an awful Sauv Blanc but not a great one either. I’d give it an 87-88 which for the price … meh I’ve had better.

Intensely aromatic and inviting, the bouquet shows passionfruit, kiwifruit, kaffir lime and lemon peel characters. The palate is lively and mouth-watering with excellent fruit power and vibrancy, beautifully supported by crisp acidity. Crowd-pleasingly tasty. At its best: now to 2020. Score – 93.
