Sidewood Sauvignon Blanc 2021
2021 represents another stellar release from Sidewood, the wine has piercingly pure tropical fruits set against crushed herbs on the nose and a palate that has intensity of fruit that is met in equal measure by crunchy, textural acidity. The fruit focuses on passionfruit, with a finely filamented citrus acidity bringing the wine to life and framing excellent length that lingers with boysenberry and subtle peppery green herbs.  Date Tasted: June 2021; Drink to: 2023; Price: $22.00; Alcohol: 12%; Rating: 95 Points; Patrick Eckel; The Wine Reviewer

Epic Negociants Margaret River Witchcliffe Sauvignon Blanc 2020
Intensely aromatic and instantly appealing, the bouquet shows green rockmelon, jalapeno, kaffir lime and lemon peel aromas, leading to a concentrated palate that's juicy and lively. The wine offers terrific fruit purity and vibrancy backed by textural mouthfeel and racy acidity, finishing impressively long and attractive. Drink: Now to 2026. Price: $22.50; Rating: 94 Points; Sam Kim; Wine Orbit

Wicks Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2021
Trophy for Best Sauvignon Blanc of Show - Royal Queensland Wine Awards 2021
Gold Medal & 95 Points -  Royal Queensland Wine Awards 2021
The palate is elegant and lively, finishing clean and crisp. Always a consistent standout sauvignon blanc from the Adelaide Hill

Alkoomi Black Label Sauvignon Blanc 2020
Partially barrel fermented and matured for 3 months. This is very classy. Restrained Granny Smith, lychee, guava and lemongrass mingle with cape gooseberry and juniper berry. On the palate the acidity is austere/rigid yet refreshing; the entire package being one of textural complexity and restraint. Bravo. Drink to: 2026; Price: $35.00; Date Tasted: Feb 2021; Alcohol: 12.8%; Rating: 94 Points; Erin Larkin; James Halliday Wine Companion
