R. H. Phillips Night Harvest Sauvignon Blanc 2004

R. H. Phillips Night Harvest Sauvignon Blanc 2004

Bottle closure: Synthetic cork

Taste profile from the winemaker: "... fresh and zesty, with vibrant citrus, green melon and cut grass aromas and crisp, mouthwatering, melon and tangerine flavors. To accentuate its fresh, bright fruit, we ferment our Sauvignon Blanc entirely in stainless steel tanks with no oak aging and bottle it within six months of the harvest."

ABC Wines review: An average sauvignon blanc, there is a nice balance between the fruit and vegetal characteristics although neither is significantly pronounced. Though relatively dry, it lacks the crisp, mineral notes of better sauvignon blancs. If available at less than the price we paid, it represents a good value. Our score: Average.
