2013 Stoneleigh Sauvignon Blanc


The last in a bracket of sub-twenty dollar Sauvignon Blanc reviews. I hope you’re all finding this as riveting as me. Tomorrow I’ll get to the new release Oakridge Chardonnays and Pinots but you need time to do them justice and I’m on the move today.

Extremely strong notes of capsicum and herbs dominate the nose. Snow peas and asparagus chime in. The palate adds citrus and unripe passionfruit with a bit of the ol’ tart gooseberry. A hint of spice on the back-palate. Better length here. If you can tolerate all those vegetable traits then you might enjoy this. Can’t say I did but to an extent that’s beside the point. Drink young for heaven’s sake. 87
