Oft maligned, but when done well, gee Sauv Blanc makes you question other insipid pretenders.
Ten Minutes by Tractor, 10X, Sauvignon Blanc, Mornington Peninsula, 2018
Struck match and flinty sulfidic elements over a touch of varietal green edged asparagus, passionfruit skin with lemon verbena, melon rind and derived nuttiness. Sharp and zingy acidity with a creamy lemon pie/fruit mid-palate (lees/oak) to a drying finish. A wine of broad strokes, heft and weight. Quality winemaking on show over fruit that can handle the challenge.
