Sauvignon Blanc 2015
94/100 also available in the UK. An older Sauvignon that has impressive aged characters. All our grapes are hand harvested, which is rare for Sauvignon Blanc. We get many different characters from our small blocks which add complexity. It's funky, soft, even described as 'green ocean', with a salty citrus line that comes from our ancient seabed limestone soils. Enjoy this rare wine.
Complex, pure, refreshing, inviting and youthful bouquet. Aromas and flavours of citrus, yellow and white orchard fruits, a saline and mineral core, leesy textures and salivating acid line. The texture of this wine is as interesting and intriguing as the core of fruit and varietal reminders of sweet herb and tropical fruit. A delightful example with best drinking from today and through 2022.

Posted @withregram • @synergy_wines Secret Sommelier comments:-
It is unusual to taste new world Sauvignon Blanc with some bottle age and for a 2015 vintage this wine is phenomenal; it has notable energy and surprisingly persistent acidity (for the age that is). The mineral texture of this wine is crunchy but turns into silk on the palate. An elegant wine that is very complex! The classic green vegetal flavours are harmonised with gooseberries, citrus fruit and tropical fruit nuances with minerality that shines on the finish. The wine has length. In the glass…Old world meets new world in perfect harmony. Mirrors Sancerre Mont Damnes’ quality and complexity at a fraction of the price.
