Community Tasting Note

  • HL Pong wrote: 88 points

    August 9, 2020 - Appearance : pale lemon with light green rim and legs

    On nose : medium + intensity, ripe citrus : lemon, gooseberry, pungent patroleum, some buttery, mineral and some green pepper spiciness. Overall. The aroma is ripe and secondary aroma significant.

    On nose palate : high acidity, ripe citrus on front palate, gooseberries, passion fruits, med body and med alcohol, med+ finishing with savoury mineral and bitterness flavour aftertaste.

    After open up for half an hour, it has a better performance. It become more integrated. Frankly speaking, despite of the complexity of the aroma and flavour on palate, it does have some sharp corner in some aspect. Surely, it is not my favourite Sauvignon Blanc style as this wine is too intense and a feeling of upsurge but lack of balance. Just my opinion for reference. Cheers!
