Fraser Gallop Estate Semillon Sauvignon Blanc 2018
Both varieties were partially barrel-fermented, increasing the texture and complexity, but leaving the varietal character of each razor-sharp prior to blending. A zesty, lively, tangy wine is the result, with grapefruit, green apple and hints of passionfruit and guava on the aftertaste. Drink by: 2022; Price: $24.00; Date Tasted: Sept 2018; Alcohol: 13%; Rating: 96 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday Wine Companion

Sidewood Sauvignon Blanc 2018
The Mappinga Vineyard was hand-picked over 2 weeks, rows selected daily, the grapes chilled before being pressed. The bouquet of lychee and other tropical aromas sets the scene for a palate of a plate of carefully sliced fruits and a squeeze of lemon. All of which may suggest this is just a fun sauvignon blanc, when in fact it has a beautifully poised and very long finish and aftertaste. Highway robbery at this price. Drink to: 2020; Price: $25.00; Date Tasted: Mar 2019; Alcohol: 12%; Rating: 95 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday Wine Companion
