Jacques Lurton 2008 Touraine
Jacques Lurton - a member of one of France's most famous winemaking families - is one of the original flying winemakers and has worked just about anywhere on the globe where you find grapes. He's making a success of his Islander Estate label on Kangaroo Island while also importing some of his affordable French wines. This sauvignon blanc has some lovely fresh fruit, Gallic reserve and beguiling layers of flavour. It is dry and vibrant, long and lean with plenty of summer appeal. Drink now. Order from www.iev.com.au. Terrific value at $22.
