Ten Minutes by Tractor 10x Sauvignon Blanc, Mornington Peninsula 2013 $28 Value: good

This is an attempt to do more with the sauvignon blanc grape. With a developed, mid-yellow hue and a toasty almond and honey, barrel-tinged bouquet, this is savoury, dry, lip-smacking and has a lovely textural quality. Rich yet restrained. Now to three years. 13.1 per cent alcohol. 93/100 – Huon’s Wine 360

Food: salt and pepper squid

Stockists: Prince Wine Store, Melbourne; Five Way Cellars, Sydney
