The Supernatural Sauvignon Blanc 2013

I saw another review of this wine that had me chuckling along at references to some of the marketing 'spin' that accompanied the press release.

That aside, as a wine, it's of interest. I was inclined to remark whilst tasting: "think you know NZ Sauvignon Blanc?". Opens with familiar gooseberry and herbal wafts supported with tropical fruit. Possesses a milkiness, a creamy herbiness - inclined to suggest sage - with suggestions of cornichon.

The palate shows hints of flinty and smoke with a palate structure that does build a little. Textural nuances before fading away. Little real length to speak of. It was a wine I enjoyed - yes as a point of difference perhaps. 90
