Hemispheres Wine Guild
Catrala Estate Winery - Sauvignon Blanc 2008

The wine is vibrant and clear with subtle lime and straw tints. The bouquet is complex and intense, avoiding one-dimensionality. It shows the effects of multiple passes through the vineyard, giving it layers of flavours. They range from citrus, pear, passionfruit and guava to more savoury notes of crushed gravel, cloves and aniseed. The wine is surprisingly full bodied, with high natural acidity balancing the weighty fruit extract. A classy wine, with loads of appeal. 91 points. Cellar 2-5 years.
