Frenzy Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, 2008
While La Vieille Ferme is meeting my expectations for aging (see below), this Sauvignon Blanc--incredibly exciting when I first tasted it last July--is now a bit disappointing. It still has high acidity freshness but the complex range of flavors it offered a few months ago (gooseberry, melon, passion fruit, spring flowers) has quickly been reduced. Grapefruit is now the dominant theme. It's still a nice wine, but I would recommend drinking any bottles you have over the next few months.
