Shaw &Smith Sauvignon Blanc

A patriotic post should be allowed on Australia Day. You heard about the NZ wine tsunami, the unstoppable wave of their Sauvignon Blancs. Please, do yourself a favour and drink a real good one, the 2009 Shaw & Smith Sauvignon Blanc from the Adelaide Hills.

This wine is very harmonious. It tastes of gooseberry, like they all do, but it is not overly aggressive and acidic, yet still refreshing. The best feature is its mouth feel, really head and shoulders above most sauvignons. If you must drink one, drink this Aussie beauty.

Score: 92/++
