Exceptional for the price! I'm giving it 3 stars because I reserve 5 stars for my bucket list picks and 4 stars for my outstanding wine picks. This is an extremley good Sauvignon Blanc and a great deal for the price. It overperforms and refuses to be overstated. This is not like New Zealand SB (meaning no huge grapefruit here), instead you'll find hints of all things citrus, a lovely light body and a refreshing profile. I think the winemaker's notes on this one are spot-on.
I did not get as much lemon as the reviewers, instead I perceived wonderful limey minerality. Green apple in there as well. Bone dry with high acid, the fruit is so juicy that my companion thougt there was residual sugar in it. Nope, that's called citrus fruit, lots of it. I have yet to try a Leeuwin wine I didn't love.
I was sceptical, however, this is actually an extremely good wine for the money. It is solid, smooth, and not overly-fruity, making it a great wine to sit down at lunch or dinner with. LIKE!
Tried this yesterday. Extremely young in its development but showing great promise, I'm curious to see where it goes. At the moment, Sangiovese is prominent, meaning it has a while to integrate all it's component parts. If you insist on trying one now and one after 2014, decant for several hours.
