Pertaringa 2013 Scarecrow Sauvignon Blanc

The first wines from the recent vintage are starting to make their way into the stores; and this a beauty. Made from fruit grown in the cool Adelaide Hills (Pertaringa is now part of the Geoff Hardy stable), this is a deliciously crisp and fresh sauvignon blanc with tropical fruit salad notes. It is not as overt as some of its Kiwi cousins but is extremely approachable and very refreshing. I’d pair this with salt and pepper calamari. $18.
