Lillie Sauvignon Blanc
Allocated & Winery Only ~ Available for Purchase
The 2012 Lillie Sauvignon Blanc has an immediate sense of weight and texture on the nose with aromas of lemon oil and honey blossom. The weight of the aromas loosen up as the secondary floral notes bounce from lemon grass and fresh cut flowers to dried hay and finish, subtly and citrusy, with a tangerine zest. On the palate the wine has a broad and buoyant weight that adds a touch of apricot and mango to the complex flavor profile. The finish is juicy and fresh with a lingering salinity that lightens the weight of the wine. The restraint, the depth and the freshness evident in the wines aromas and texture, makes us believe that the 2012 vintage will be considered one of the Estate's finest.

"A beautiful white, exhibiting a white Burgundy-like texture that gives the wine a rich, savory quality. Exotic aromas of mangoes, marmalade, lemongrass and pineapples jump from the glass of this gorgeously fruity, exuberant Sauvignon."
