Wither Hills Sauvignon Blanc

Well, I do drink white wine occasionally. Many are critical of Sauvignon Blancs, but they cut through food pretty well, particularly at lunch time. The problem is many are grassy and too pungent, which is why the folks from Western Australia mix them with Semillons. However, blends often make for dull wines.

This one has been a solid performer for many years. Its sharpness and freshness is matched with ripe fruit and the result is a refreshing drink which is quite versatile. It goes particularly well with fish and salads.
