Bakkheia Different Drummer Sauvignon Blanc 2012

"If a man does not keep pace with his companions, 
perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer"

The above quote comes from Henry Thoreau and Bakkheia took the Different Drummer to label their Fume Sauvignon Blanc, as it was the first white wine they had made.

Opens with hints of lemon balm, a gentle underlying hint of tropical fruit, some aromatic herb: lemongrass, lemon basil. It doesn't shout like Sauvignon Blanc can, it gently states its case.

Nicely textured. A little creamy lemon courses its way around the palate, delivering a mineral hint with a gentle pinch of acid, tickle of spice. Texture and a smokey hint flow through, finish moderate, fading gently. Gentle an apt descriptor here, the wine fine and balanced. 88
