Kidnapper Cliffs

Kidnapper Cliffs "Solan" (Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon) 2010 Hawke's Bay 13%
N: Lovely expression of fruit and 'terroir': lemon,  a hint of lime and grapefruit with a warm peach edge, a steely note adds sharpness and clarity to the bouquet and a stony note adds mineral suggestion.

P: Refreshing and tight with a powerful citrus and high acid palate – tempered by the fruit of the Semillon adding a tropical/pineapple/apple edge. Salivating and juicy with a strong soil flavour under current, light on complexity but heavy on flavour, solid impact on the palate, medium+ length.
