Reschke Fumé Sauvignon Blanc 2015


There aren't many producing a fumé blanc style sauvignon blanc in Australia and I think this wine's a bit of a success. From early picked sauvignon blanc in Coonawarra, it has seen some time on French oak. It is neither unduly green, nor unduly woody, achieving a good balance in the glass. The aromatics remind of lemon with a touch of cedar. There are more green peppers, than classic SB gooseberries. The palate is medium-full bodied and has quite good length and a dry finish, with a well judged residual sugar contribution. Rating: Good. Abv: 12.5%. Price: $25. Source: Sample.
