Wise Owl

Wise Owl 'Hooting White' 2013 13%
No grape varieties suggested on the label - so here goes!
Aromas of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc lead the bouquet with hints of white fleshed Pinot Gris fruits then perhaps a little Riesling with the mandarin note and a touch of Viognier or Gewurztraminer suggested as spice-note -  Who knows!
On the palate - just dry with flavors that reflect the nose; medium+ acidity; a refreshingly simple palate with lively fruit flavors - balanced and well made.

Wise Owl 'Swooping' Sauvignon Blanc 2013 13%
Classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc bouquet with wild tropical fruits, apple and crisp red bell-pepper, grassy and bold.
On the palate - dry, crisp and fruity and refreshing with medium++ acidity. A simple fruity expression with medium length, balanced and well made.
3 Stars

Wise Owl 'Parliament' Pinot Gris 2014 13%
A forward and fruity bouquet with white pear, white peach and crisp red apple fruit aromas.
The palate suggests the same with fresh, lush and fruity flavors in a simple frame of medium+ acidity. Balanced and well made with medium length.
3 Stars

Wise Owl 'Ruffled' Merlot 2013 13.5%
Bold and fruity with baked plum and black berry fruit flavors; youthful with medium+ acidity; medium+ tannins with a grippy edge. Needs food - & you - rare beef with stacks of potatoes and olives.
