Mitchell Harris Sauvignon Blanc Fumé 2012

Opened a swag of Sauvignon Blanc, and this was by far the best of the bunch - quite possibly as it is so far removed from what the general representation of the variety is.

Key lime with waxy hints, toasty and smoky on the palate.  It's lie in a combination of restraint compared to some of the overt examples tasted, and the texture imparted through oak barrel maturation.

Holds a generous acidic line that builds in the mouth and flares a little, adding extra width.  Just adored its textural feel and staying power.  93 - Very Good

Tasted on: Sunday 16th December, a Root Day
