Sauvignon Blanc 2011
Deliciously crisp with flavours of fresh passionfruit. green apple and gooseberry.Download Full Winemaker Note
At release the wine is a very pale straw with a green edged hue.
The wine is distinctly Australian with fresh aromas of passionfruit, rockmelon and guava with a hint of cut grass.
This wine has a fresh and zippy palate with regional varietal flavours of tropical fruit up front and then gooseberry and asparagus from the mid-palate. Overall, the wine fills the mouth with flavour and a cleansing acidity. The finish has a hint of grassiness and great persistence.

Bargin white & reds
A blend of two states delivers a subtle beauty of a savvy here - and it's very attractive due to a more delicate approach. Floral to begin with restrained tropical flavours, its great gift is a classy minerally palate not often found at this level. Impressive.

Wine. Three of the Best
The latest release sauvignon blanc from Taylors once again hits the mark as an excellent affordable wine. Flavours of fresh passionfruit, green apple and gooseberry. Once again will be better with a year or two in the bottle, but still perfect to drink now.
