Pertaringa Scarecrow Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Aromatics that are the calling card of the variety.  Has a softness, a delicacy on approach; underlying tropicals with passionfruit, lychee, gooseberry - lemon citrus topping things off.

I like to see Sauvignon Blanc with an interest factor, here it comes by virtue of the common technique of lees stirring to build character and here provide a layered, textural quality. 

Gives the added benefit of supporting the fruit and adding mineral zing.  It's fresh, lively and vibrant  - demonstrating a good persistence of flavour on the finish, wrapping things up with some enhanced mouthfeel on the finish.  90 - Good
