Nepenthe Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc 2011

Pretty polarising varietal is Sauvignon Blanc.  Rather maligned amongst the wine-erati, but guzzled by the gallon with a certain type of consumer group.  The latter would certainly like this effort from the 2011 vintage.

Regional hallmarks of goosebery, lychee and passion fruit.  General troppo-fruit and sweet as.  Entry shows some furtive mineral, a hard edge to the wine.  Glimpses of stonefruit, a background floral note - but still the sweetness was rather overt for my - and that is the thing here - liking.  Its conclusion shows some pronounced acid afore a rather truncated finish.  85 - Average
