- Closure: Cork
The 1998 Katnook Sauvignon Blanc was a powerhouse of aroma and flavour, whereas the 1999 is much more restrained. Bright pale straw colour. Restrained nose of tropical fruit and mango. On the palate flavours of tropical fruit are dominant over a subtle pineapple background. Good palate weight, but without strong varietal definition expected from the variety. Make no mistake, this is a very well made wine, but it comes straight after the extraordinary 1998 and perhaps because of this the wine is being judged more harshly than would otherwise be the case. Very good balance, followed by warm spice and tropical fruits aftertaste. Cellar 1-2 years.
Retasted May 2000
Brilliant pale straw colour. Excellent varietal nose with lifted aromas of ripe gooseberries and tropical fruits. The palate has excellent weight and concentration of flavour, reflecting the nose, and re emphasising the ripe gooseberry flavour components. Clean crisp acid finish with long spice, gooseberry and tropical fruit aftertaste. Cellar 3-4 years.
