Villa Maria Cellar Selection Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough 2013 $23

This has all the pungent varietal aromas of capsicum and cut-radish that we expect of the style, and is intense and vibrant in the mouth with bright acidity. Piercing, searing fruit/acid combination, without obvious sweetness. It’s the real deal. Now to 2016. 13 per cent alcohol. 90/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)

Food: mussels with curry, coriander and cream

Stockists: Chambers Cellars Neutral Bay, North Randwick & Avalon
