Oxford Landing Estates Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Pungent aromatics, heavy tropicals and gooseberry tones clearly mark it out as sauvignon Blanc. 

Simple, clean, but showing balance. There's varietal character here - chalky, citrus, lychee notes, hints of green apple.

Tropical hints remain on the finish.  Not complex, but if you're seeking complexity at $9 then I'd question why you're reading a wine blog.   
85 - Average

Tasted on: 9th October, a Flower Day

  1. Fair point Stu but I may suggest they are reading a blog to find good value wine at that price point.
    Would you buy it for $9?

    1. No I wouldn't buy it for $9.

      It was clean and offered varietal character. But not what I would drink.

      Call me a snob, but I didn't start blogging to drink wines of personal limited appeal.

      Spending just a few $ more would get you into 'Y' series territory with significant qualitative improvement.
