Sileni Estates Cellar Selection Sauvignon Blanc

In the cold and difficult Marlborough vintage of 2012, avoiding hard acidity proved to be a challenge. It’s refreshing to find a finely poised acid line in any sauvignon, let alone one that can be yours for the princely sum of $11 at Dan Murphy’s this week. Crunchy lemon and lime zest are the themes of this crisp, clean style, with an air of mandarin blossom and an impressively persistent passionfruit finish.
