Can Savvy be Serious?

The Wine Anorak site has a fascintaing article about a tasting of Sauvignon Blanc from around the world, involving leading wine critics, as part of a project to create a new 'icon' Sauvignon Blanc.

The 2007 Seresin Marama was one of the wines tasted blind and was given one of the highest scores in the tasting (92/100) with the following comment:"Intense minerally, toasty nose. Rich, concentrated and complex with powerful ripe fruit flavours and some smoky herbal notes. The palate has an amazing array of flavours: green herbs, toast, minerals and fresh citrus. There’s noticeable oak here but lots of fruit, too. An amazing wine that’s weird but really good."
