Ferngrove Symbols Sauvignon Semillon 2013

Opens a touch sweaty with the presence of aromatic compounds known as 'mercaptans' present (specifically ethanethiol if you wish to get sexy on terminology). Hints of nettle here too - not altogether uncommon in cooler region sauvignon blanc.

The palate shows a light bodied, some freshness present here too: fruit backing up with a little chalky phenolics.

Length offers a little redemption from the aromatic introduction that wasn't quite my cup of tea. 85
