Edgebaston Sauvignon Blanc

2007 Edgebaston Finlayson Family Vineyards Western Cape Sauvignon Blanc 77 Points

Pale straw with a slight geen tinge, shy with Sancerre like austerity, hints of white pepper and green fig.

Crisp, green lime texture, soft acids with honeyed notes on mid palate, delicate texture, but somehow lacking weight and Sauvignon gravity…good pleasant aftertaste, but not lingering.

Could there be a hint of oak in the wine ?? as some faint notes of vanilla and coconut like, perceptible, now until 2010
