Rutherglen Estates 2009 Savagnin

Savagnin is the new name for what we previously called albarino - but turned out not to be. The name change is certain to cause confusion (I've already had one magazine helpfully change savagnin to sauvignon) but what is not in doubt is that this is very enjoyable young white at a good price. There are some attractive floral/ctrus notes and a lovely creamy texture on the palate. Terrific drinking at $16.95.
