Cook's Lot Lot #689 Sauvignion Blanc 2012

Herb, nettle and citrus waft out of the glass here, supported by a little oak character.  And there you start to see the difference between this and this and those that went before it.

Shows texture on the palate - for winemaker Duncan Cook has opted to employ techniques such as battonage, stirring of the wine on its lees, and partial barrel fermentation, to add this extra dimension to the wine.

Technique alone does not make the wine, and cooler conditions of 2012 has resulted in cooler character showing itself.  Good length, lingering length and lasting flavour.  Citrus and herbaceous not conclude matters.  90 - Good
