Insensitive Fume Blanc
2016 Sauvignon Blanc
Visual: Very clear and light straw colour with nuances of light green/sliver and medium legs. Nose: Delicate but elegant bouquet of complex notes. Floral elements are dancing with notes of ripe citrus, tropical aromas and grassiness with hint of restrained oak flavours. Second nose brings more fruit weight and intensity with a stronger feeling of opulent spiced oak aromas. Palate: Quiet but pleasant attack of tight citrus flavours, white flowers with nuances of tropical fruits supported by a nice minerality. Midpalate tends to express an intense fruit weight, a delicate texture from the oak yet still a fresh clean acidity. Finish on ripe stone fruits carried on by a refined tension.
