Silkwood Estate The Bowers Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Couldn't find too much about this wine on either the producer or distributor's website.

Certainly opens confidently and with conviction, a herbaceous, nettle and an underlying citrus aroma awakening and enlivening, leaving no doubt as to the variety at hand.

Opens with a creamy, rounded and softened palate. The nettle and herb spikes up towards the middle palate, somewhat unsettling and leading to a slight bitter, acidic crackle before settling into a gentle ending, somewhat surprisingly. 

On the one hand a a fairly commercial minded Sauvignon Blanc that at least offers some interest. 88
