Wither Hills Sauvignon Blanc 2005

Wither Hills Sauvignon Blanc 2005

I drink the occasional glass of Sauvignon Blanc. This was opened for our babysitters last night and they kindly left me a glass to sample today. The wine is quite pale in colour, with a touch of yellowing. The nose shows clean cut grass, white asparagus and tinned peas. The palate is clean, clear and focused, with lemon acid spine, musk and some stalky asparagus. Nothing flabby or tropical about this wine. Reasonably weight on the palate, but not what I would call generous. All the same, very pleasant.
