Osawa Wines

Flying Sheep Single Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2011 Hawke's Bay 13.5%
N: Fragrant; showing specific wine making, showing complexity - perhaps some natural and traditional ferments blended, a lighter older oak touch, floral and fruity, reserved in nature.

P: Drinking as young as it smells and displays the complexity suggested in the nose: sweet citrus with lemon, crisp apple and light tropical fruits. Medium+ to high acidity with medium complexity. A little sophistication and a touch of elegance (Yes - for a Sauvignon Blanc) yet remains true to style and climbs of Hawke's Bay. Balanced and dry with medium length - well made.
4 Stars
