Five Rows 2008 Sauvignon Blanc
When word came out about this winery there were two stories told. First was about their high prices – price is always a factor in people’s opinion; the second was the explanation: they only have 5 rows of vines, that’s why the price is so high. The second part is a myth – as I heard it they has an experimental fives rows before expanding their vineyard (or something like that). The reason the prices are high is because they only make wine in very small batches. This Sauvignon Blanc was French oak fermented and aged for about ten months; the nose is very pretty giving off both grassy and grapefruit smells, though more grassy than grapefruit. The palate lacks the crispness you’ve come to expect from Savvy B, that’s because of the oak influence – but what it lacks in crisp it gains in finesse – grapefruit cocktail and loads of flavour. Price: $25.00 – Rating: ****
