Cook's Lot Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Makes some pretty smart wines does Duncan Cook of Cook's Lot wines. The brand has received some good exposure from James Halliday's Australian Wine Companion magazine, and I'd like to think that I've given the wines a fair run on this here blog!

Opened alongside a couple of other Sauvignon Blanc, this showed the greater aromatics. Lemon sherbet tickles the nasal hairs, sitting in front of a herbal twang. It's not pungent, exhibiting faint tropicals - all up a good aromatic package.

Good vibrancy on the palate, starts out imbued with a little citrus, and builds from this  - similar techniques are seen from the 2012, the texture and partial barrel ferment character.

Has a wee stony edge to it too, a touch of zing and zest. All up it finishes well, holds a line, advancing - steady as she goes. 91
