Yealands Single Block S1 Sauvignon Blanc 2014
Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Estate Single Block S1 Sauvignon Blanc has delicate notes of white blossoms and green apples with hints of wet pebbles and coriander seed. Pretty and elegant on the palate, it has approachable acidity and mineral flavors on the long finish.
Wine SpectatorLight and crisp, with a vivid and bright acidity that provides a good backbone for the lime, white grapefruit and pear flavors. A whiff of passion fruit and spice emerges on the long finish. Drink now. 3,000 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastOn the nose, this shows some of the Awatere Valley's classic nettle or tomato leaf-like signature, but also hints of stone fruit and struck flint. On the palate, it nicely combines elements of stone fruit, citrus and fresh herbs, finishing gentle and easy.
