Tim’s Tasting Notes

90

2013 A l'Envers, Sauvignon Blanc, Bordeaux

£12, 12.5%, Tesco

Tasted at: July Recommendations

Made by David Hohnen, the Aussie who created Cloudy Bay Sauvignon, and British Master of Wine Clem Yates, this is a tangy, smoky, reductive style with notes of struck match, citrus and pink grapefruit. It doesn't taste like a Kiwi Sauvignon, but that's no bad thing. Taut and refreshing, it shows that Hohnen hasn't lost his touch with Sauvignon.
