Original tasting and review : This is Matthew Iaconis Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, Margaret River, Australia, 2013, finished at 12.5% alcohol and first sampled one year from vintage date, in October, 2014.
In the glass: Clear, light golden and vanilla highlights.
On the nose: Poured at room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows grasses and soft fruit. From the aroma, seems like this will be light, sleek and fruity.
On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact as expected, with a sweet, fresh light grass element blending with a sleeker mid-palate fruit. You can pick up both varietals of the blend easily.
In summary: Overall, rates three stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale, making this a best value.
