Alkoomi Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Tasted in amongst a bracket of other whites. Fairly rapid tasting - tasting note as written. Grassy, hints of lemon/ lemon balm with faint tropicals offering support. The sort of Sauvignon Blanc that I find too 'spirited' with the alcohol vapours tickling the tops of my nostrils. 

Quite bitter and acidic on the palate, shows a bit more textural width than other examples. Spends a bit of time on skins to aid that - still i cannot escape the astringent elements on the palate. 86
