“… more flesh and flavour than most Tasmanian Sauvignon Blancs” – James Halliday
The 2013 vintage is a worthy successor to Clemens Hill 2012 Sauvignon Blanc’s title of #1 Sauvignon Blanc Tasted by Huon Hooke: the 2013 is equally full of flavour and set to define itself as a real crowd-pleaser. Tropical fruit and citrus flavours led James Halliday to write that this vintage “… has more flesh and flavour than most Tasmanian Sauvignon Blancs”
Winemaker: Julian Alcorso
Critics Reviews and Scores
Pale but bright quartz-green; has more flesh and flavour than most Tasmanian sauvignon blancs; moreover, the flavours run from Meyer lemon through to stone fruit and then into tropical characters, the finish bringing lime-accented acidity into play.
Score: 94 Points
“Pungent capsicum, lime leaf and lantana aromas. Crisp and tangy with an underlay of sweetness, the finish is slightly short and it’s quite consetic and aromatic. Prettied-up and a real crowd pleaser.” – on 2011 Sauvignon Blanc.
