Rymill SBS Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2011 (Coonawarra, SA)
12%, Screwcap, $19.95
This sees a partial oak fermentation. Can’t hide the challenges of the 2011 vintage though.
Such a super snappy wine! Asparagus and herbs with underlying tropical fruit. Palate is greenish but not unripe, with sharply delineated edges. You can see every line and every angle here, which makes it something of a challenging wine to really love. A little more fruit sweetness would go a long way here.
Score: 15/20 84/100
