This exemplary Sauvignon is complete and convincing, with great balance between crispness and breadth. There’s plenty of expressive herbal aroma and lots of cutting citrus acidity for those who like their Sauvignons on the wild side, but the wine never seems too pushy or pungent in aromatic terms, and the acidity is bright but never sour or overly tart. There’s also a nicely ripe note of white melon that fills out the mid-palate, and the wine shows surprising weight and depth of flavor. And on top of all that, this is not even the top Sauvignon Blanc from this producer, though it is within a whisker in terms of overall quality, with the differential between the two really coming down to subjective preference between more intense and more augmented styles.

Has lots of gooseberry and celery character, with hints of flint. Full-bodied and very rich, with lots of fruit and a long finish. An excellent Sauvignon, with lots of character, yet refined. Drink now.

The 2006 Sauvignon is a textbook, reference point expression of varietal and terroir. It offers perfumed aromatics along with citrus, tomato leaf and mint overtones, showing excellent length and a clean, fresh finish. Anticipated maturity: 2007–2009.

Villa Russiz offers an elegant and delicately balanced Sauvignon that puts equal emphasis on bouquet and mouthfeel. You’ll get aromas of passion fruit, cut grass, tomato leaf and the density and crispness necessary for keeping the palate refreshed.
