2012 Gerard Bertrand Reserve Speciale Sauvignon Blanc
This will seem quite familiar to Aussie savvy lovers even though it is from France. It displays some nice gooseberry and guava tropicals on the nose, along with some herbaceousness and a touch of 'sweat'. The palate is lighter-bodied and citrusy, with brisk acidity, a touch of flintiness, and a decent, crunchy, crisp finish. Just the thing for fish and chips.
This 100% Sauvignon Blanc comes from vineyards that enjoy a cool climate, and offers delicious aromas of citrus and tropical fruits.
Serve at 8-10°C as an aperitif or with shellfish, grilled fish or fresh goat’s cheese.
