Balancing Act (R. E. W.) Sauvignon Blanc New Zealand 2012 12.5%
N: Vibrant and zippy bouquet with an herbaceous and grassy beginning, followed by a mix of tree and tropical fruits: apples and passionfruit, a touch of citrus.
P: The texture of this wine is definitely different – creamier and even oily, then the attributes of Sauvignon Blanc arrive and reflect the nose – herbaceous and fruity, medium+ acidity, light+ body. The wine’s texture is atypical. The acid on the finish is a little distracting. I expect a typical Sauvignon Blanc drinker would notice the differences.
