SOHO ‘Stella’ Sauvignon Blanc 2012 Marlborough 13.3%
Winemaker: David Clouston
N: The bouquet of this example is varietal and quite intense – leaning towards a vegetal and herbal expression with basil, thyme and angelica, red and green bell peppers, then fruit – a mix of peach, apple, some citrus and finally pineapple – no shortage of aroma and bouquet.
P: A balanced collection of fruit, herbal and vegetal attributes that keep the palate busy and reflect what the nose suggests. The finish has some zesty appeal. Medium++ acid – crisp and dry with some saliva-inducing layers as well. Moderate length and finish. Well made.
