Sidewood Sauvignon Blanc 2020
A fragrant blossom-filled bouquet, with tropical notes feeding through to a lively, juicy palate that presents a dual stream of citrus and passionfruit flavours. Has the effortless charm that many sauvignon blancs lack. Ready now. Drink to: 2022; Price: $22.00; Date Tasted: Nov 2020; Alcohol: 12%; Rating: 95 Points & Special Value Star & Top 100 Wines for 2020; James Halliday Wine Companion

Bleasdale Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc 2019
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

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

West Cape Howe Mount Barker Sauvignon Blanc 2019
From the Langton Vineyard that stamps the bouquet with a smoky/toasty edge, the flavours shifting on the palate towards a mix of grassy/herbal notes, and contrasting juicy citrus/gooseberry flavours. A cut above much of the sauvignon blanc from east or west Australia. Drink to: 2023; Price: $22.00; Date Tasted: Sept 2019; Alcohol: 12%; Rating: 95 Points & Top 100 Wines & Special Value Star; James Halliday Wine Companion
