Review: Holm Oak – Sauvignon Blanc (2014)

Sauvignon Blanc from Holm Oak

The Wine Review:

Being a warm day here in Sydney I decided to refresh myself with something from the cooler regions of Australia, a Tasmanian Sauvignon Blanc. This wine is a mix of 80% cool fermented in stainless steel and 20% naturally fermented in older oak. Post fermentation the wine was lees stirred weekly for 2 months. The result is a distinctly floral wine with a pleasant texture on the palate.

The wine is clear and has a straw-yellow colour in appearance. On the nose it quite floral and grassy, the oak is present in the background, and after a while, a light touch of tropical melons appear. On the palate it’s crisp and zesty surrounded by a smooth oakiness. A pleasant tropical fruit aftertaste that doesn’t linger long.

TL;DR: A solid performer and good value for money. A crisp summer white that would do well at a picnic or just with some fish & chips.
