Gladstone Vineyard 12,000 Miles
Sauvignon Blanc, 2011
New Zealand White
I like this , I like it a lot.
Elegance on the nose and then fleshiness on the palate. A really nice mish-mash of old world/new world flavours.
Delicate herb, greens and a little stone fruit on the nose. The palate shows more weight than many Kiwi SB's with nice texture and more stone fruit than you would expect. Maybe not quite as much zing as you would expect but that makes it more drinkable.
Honestly it's a little outside the bracket of what people expect from 'Savvy' but I like it more for it
just about had enough of more than one glass of super expressive sweat and blackcurrant styles.
