Impressive Sauvignon Blanc from Adelaide Hills
When it comes to Sauvignon Blanc we do not hear much about Australia.
Sure the Margaret River makes some impressive wines with Sauvignon Blanc as a major component, but almost always with some Semillon in the equation. Other than that you have to look around a bit to find anything worthwhile. Holding that thought, the cooler, higher elevation Adelaide Hills of South Australia, home to Shaw and Smith, has been turning out what is regarded as that country's finest version of Sauvignon Blanc.
The just recently released Shaw and Smith Sauvignon Blanc 2017 is gorgeous and does the varietal justice, countering riper fruit notes of apricot and citrus cut with some greener, herbal characters that are all in perfect balance, with a backbone of vibrant, racy acidity. Killer reviews include a 96 Pts James Halliday and 92 Pts Decanter which speaks highly of its quality. We are offering this impressive Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc for $19.99 a bottle and $17.99 on six bottle or more purchase, which brings a lot of bang for the buck.
