Sineann wines and whole bunch of other stuff (Our home): Really delicious and ageing nicely. The exuberant fruit is fading but in its place is a lovely piercing minerality balance with great acidity. There is a complexity and layering going on now. While youthful, it seems to be in the the pre-teen years and doing fine. I suspect the screw cap helps that.
A very herby nose, with secondary notes of white plum and pluot. Full palate adding a grassy component, and a nice spicy finish. Peter said he has a slightly different NZ Sauvignon Blanc in the works for a house wine for Greenhouse Tavern that, if its anything like this, would be a great by-the-glass match with many of the dishes on their menu.
All in all a bit overdone and straying into that canned asparagus kind of note. But the only reason I notice that is because I am having it right next to Mohua. Otherwise it would just be big a tropical.
