Bakkheia Different Drummer Sauvignon Blanc 2013


Bakkheia in Geographe have produced here a varietally correct and interesting sauvignon blanc.  It has typical grass and gooseberry characters on the nose.  A bit of interest has been added with some oak in the mix, and it has been handled very deftly if I may say so.  The palate is clean, fresh and well balanced.  This is a good style of sauvignon blanc that appeals.

Rating: Good, Abv: 12.9%, Price: not yet released, Source: sample, Vendors: http://www.wine-searcher.com/, Website: http://www.bakkheia.com.au, Tasted: 2014
