Epic Negociants Margaret River Witchcliffe Sauvignon Blanc 2020
Pale to medium-straw colour. A nose of lemon pith, oyster-shell and Thai basil. Super-bright and fresh palate. Simple citrus fruit with a seashell minerality. A great acid line keeps it zippy and zingy. The finish shows a good tension of fruit sweetness and some phenolic crunch. Bright to the end. Tasted: February 2021; Drink: 2021 to 2026; Alcohol: 13%; Rating: 92 Points; Awarded: Top Rank & Top Value; Stuart Knox; The Real Review

Stella Bella Skuttlebutt Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2020
Margaret River does this style so well it would be hard to deny at any price, let alone this. It's made in the vineyard, vinification without any embellishment - except perhaps a hint of sweetness. No matter; the blend of kaffir lime, white peach and passionfruit is balanced and freshened by crisp acidity. Drink to: 2025; Price: $19.00; Date Tasted: Nov 2020; Alcohol: 12.9%; Rating: 94 Points & Special Value Star & Top 100 Wines for 2020; James Halliday Wine Companion

Chain Of Ponds Black Thursday Sauvignon Blanc 2019
It’s fabulously fruited and intensely aromatic on the nose showing Gala apple, lime peel, jalapeno and sweet basil notes, followed by a juicy palate that’s flavoursome and lingering. The wine offers lovely mid-palate weight backed by bright acidity, finishing long and very appealing. Rating: 95 Points; Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

Bleasdale Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc 2020
2019 Review: On point for the variety in this region. Lime and lemon juice - plus zest - mix it up with some feijoa and fresh herbs, notably basil. Crisp sorbet-like acidity and a lingering finish makes this an excellent drink. Drink to: 2022; Price: $22.00; Alcohol: 12.5%; Rating: 95 Points & Special Value Star; Jane Faulkner; James Halliday Wine Companion
