Tamar Ridge S.Blanc 2007

Tamar Ridge, Kayena Vineyard, Sauvignon blanc, Tasmania, Australia, 2007

This wine: Lot No. L106, varietal sauvignon blanc, screw-cap closure, 13.5% abv, Vintage Wines, bin end, £9 (09/17)

Consumer tasting note: faulty.

WSET style tasting note
Appearance: faulty, when agitated in bottle shows significant masses of filaments, similar, now in glass, to woolen threads in water.

Nose: faulty, medium (+) intensity, with aromas as they come, of whiffs of sewage, warm wet wool.

Palate: practically zero intensity, light alcohol, light body, with flavours of very low-key sewage and warm wet wool.

Quality: faulty. This chronic level malaise seems likely to be caused either by bacterial infection, or perhaps yeast-induced haziness, which is frequently associated with off-odours [1].

Drinking readiness/ageing potential: faulty.
