Laithwaites is somewhat unusual in being made from 100% Sauvignon Gris, an obscure clonal mutation of Sauvignon Blanc - a fact which turns out to be the most interesting things about this wine.
A sandy colour in the glass, on the nose there are citrus, lightly herbaceous and melon aromas.
The palate is full and ripe, with a touch of buzziness from gentle oaking.
So far, so alright.
Sadly, it all goes completely wrong on the finish; the acidity feels harsh and unpleasant and, ironically, hangs around for quite a while, rather like a house guest reluctant to leave.
Not cheap and one to avoid.
