Tasting Notes:

An old style with a modern outlook, this wine could be a window into the future of Australian Sauvignon Blanc. We don't often get the big intensity of fruit that New Zealand's Marlborough provides but parts of Australia from time to time do grow good sauvignon blanc; it's just different. Wines like this one from Taltarni offer an interesting angle on a variety some people may be getting tired of. Surprisingly it is made with new French oak. Surprising only because when tasting this wine the new oak component is subtle without any dominating smokey, toasty or vanilla flavours. The fruit is so pristine and perfectly ripe it handles the oak beautifully, pushing it into the background where it provides textural, savoury support, a little weight and subtle creaminess. It finishes steely and spicy with a seamless flow across the palate. Try it and make up your own mind, but with a plate full of fresh seafood it is fabulous.
