2015 Ferngrove Leaping Lizard Sauvignon Blanc

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Lip smacking Savvy from WA that will have you back online screaming for more. Talk about over delivering, this is the kind of wine retailers like us love delivering to our customers.

Flavours ranging from citrus, kiwi fruit and the traditional passionfruit are followed up by a nice line of acidity, which is essential to achieve a palate with a unique balance between flavour and crispness.

Drink now while the fresh fruit flavours dominate. Smash it down with some seafood this weekend!

Don’t expect the big in-your-face style of savvy. There is little more finesse in this excellent current-drinking wine. A fresh and bright savvy showing lovely light pear and crunchy passionfruit characters. Not as overt as the New Zealand style but still packing a punch. It has a clean fresh finish with a lively crisp acid. Excellent current drinking.

Firm, herbal/mineral style; needs more fruit on the mid-palate, but does have some thrust on the finish

Clean, bright and fresh; some tropical passionfruit flavours merge with lemony acidity; good length.

Here's a tip: do not taste sauv blanc the night before a root canal. What might otherwise be 'fresh and bracing acidity* suddenly feels like the famous dentist-torturer scene from Marathon Man. But you can't blame the wine for that. This has touches of gooseberry and lots of freshly-cut-grass characters that reminded me of endless wasted weekends as a kid mowing and raking lawns.... Actually, it's a wonder this wine made the book at all.
