I see I'm the first to taste this wine for about 2 years, so I was worried I'd left it too long. The nose is easily identifiable as sauvignon, though the bottle ageing means that there is no longer the nettles and grassiness usually found on younger wines. Rich and full on the palate, still quite long, went well with smoked trout. No difference between the two bottles opened. So we got this just in time.
A bit reticent nose with currant leaf to lemon, melon and slight passion fruit richness. Dry, balanced and creamy with zesty lemon bite, floral touches and gooseberries. Surprisingly long finish. Not quite yet there, but getting better with age.
