Harewood Estate 2008 Sauvignon Blanc Semillon

I was quite looking forward to this little drop. Lots of people "in-the-know" have some big wraps on it, and I was expecting good things.

Unfortunately, I'm sorry to say my expectation was misplaced and served only to compound my disappointment.

It smelt sweetly of pissoir and painter's rag.

It tasted artificially of pine-lime cordial and required a determined peristaltic effort to get past the first gulp.

As unbalanced as a one-legged mental patient, and as fast and loose as an AFL'er taking telephone numbers at an Auskick clinic.

Not at all what I was expecting. And very disappointing.
