Blue Metal Vineyard Southern Highlands Sauvignon Blanc

Cracka Review

A bright floral wine named after the owner’s eldest daughter – Honor. Due to the unusual weather conditions in late summer 2010 the grapes were picked riper than normal. The result is intense flavours of melon and passionfruit. The addition of a small percentage of Semillon provides a hint of zesty lime and sometime in French oak barriques imparts a mild texture. A refreshing, well balanced wine with a subtle, silky persistence.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Attractive aromas of passionfruit and gooseberry; a strong twist of lemon adds to the impact and appeal of the palate.

Clean herb, mineral and grass, with just a hint of gooseberry; pleasing length and balance.

Soft, ripe bordering on sweet tropical, fleshy fruit; surprising given the altitude.
