Name:Long Beak Sauvignon Blanc (245)

The colour was medium-pale golden yellow. The bouquet had very dry grassy gooseberry fruit, and was crisp and steely. There was strong capsicum, gooseberry and passionfruit flavours, and a dry steely acid finish. This wine was quite complex, with strong fruit but was also very crisp and clean.


Note 1 I am not really a wine expert (just an enthusiastic amateur), so please don't take my recommendations as anything more than a rough guide to these wines. I can take no responsibility if you buy a lot, on my recommendation, and then regret it!

Note 2 You may not agree with my evaluation of these wines as a lot of this is quite subjective. I tend to put a lot of emphasis on complexity and intense characteristic flavours and bouquet, so if you disagree you might just have different priorities.
