Matilda’s Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2010
While the rest of Australia … scratch that.. the world… is still in love with Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, I am a firm advocate for some of the newer styles of SB’s that are being produced in Australia or Denmark, Australia in this case. This one has the hallmarks of SB – pungent Elderflower & passionfruit but has some cool climate backbone firmly in place. It is dry (I find that some of the SB’s these days have too much residual sugar) with satisfying fruit weight and length. A crisp refreshing SB to look out for. This is a wine to simply enjoy with good friends.
