YEALANDS Sauvignon Blanc Land Made 2017

See the wine detail page

4 Stars

Bright, very pale straw colour, with slight green hues. The nose is elegant and well-proportioned with soft aromas of pungent passionfruit melded harmoniously with notes of tropical fruits, fresh herbs and suggestions of minerals. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a rounded, dense and relatively deep and concentrated core of pungent passionfruit, green capsicums and herbs. The flavours ae up-front and the palate has the energy and body to form a soft-textured, positively driven core, with lacy acidity providing liveliness. The wine carries to an elegant, lingering finish of passionfruit and herbs. This is an up-front, soft and rounded, well-packed Sauvignon Blanc with passionfruit, herb and capsicum flavours with good freshness.
