2013 Domaine A - Lady A Sauvignon Blanc Tasmania (91 pts) #winereview - Medium lemon-green color. Pronounced intensity on the nose. Oak notes of smoke, toast, and vanilla are fairly prolific until the wine gets some air. Then you get hit by gooseberry, quince, and cantaloupe. In the back there are some green herbaceous/herbal notes like jalepeno, grass, and fennel. The wine is dry, high acidity, medium alcohol, and medium+ body (almost full). Palate has a creamy texture that is very supple. Melon, cantaloupe, baked quince, and canned pineapple on the front palate. The oak is a lot better integrated on the palate that comes as a smokey or a flinty note. The finish is long and really pleasant mix of tropical fruit and almost a creme brulee. This is the first Sauvignon Blanc that I have had from Tasmania and it does impress. Almost like Pavillon Blanc duChateau Margaux and a high end NZ Sauvignon Blanc had a kid. This is complex but you need to get past the oak. I kept tasting it over 4 days and it got progressively better with air. This will improve with bottle age and will stand up to the great white Bordeaux wines eventually, but I am scoring it right here right now. Well done! #australia #tasmania #domaineA #ladyA #sauvignonblanc #wineterroir #wine #winelover #winetasting #winegeek
