3 Tales Sauvignon Blanc 2011

Marlborough experienced a cool 2011 vintage which is perfect if you are after a more restrained style of Sauvignon Blanc.

3 Tales Sauvignon Blanc 2011

Even thought the first thing I notice about the wine is the fruit flavours of gooseberries and passionfruit, the wine is much more than that. In fact the profile is not overt at all, its more introverted and thoughtful than normal for this variety. It is the type of wine that doesn't look good too cold or too hot but if served just right will surprise the senses. In the end a little chalkiness added a bit of interest and enjoyment which would make it brilliant to drink as the weather warms up a bit.
