Deviation Road 2008 Sauvignon Blanc


A terrific savvy blanc from an Adelaide Hills winery that has impressed me over the past 12 months. A wine with many layers of flavour - in contrast to its Kiwi cousins - and nice balance between herbaceous and tropical fruit characters. $18.

I think you are right, the Adelaide Hills produce some of the best Sauvignon Blanc in Australia. I actually prefer these to the Kiwi SavBlancs, which carry to much acidity for my taste these days.

Thanks
