Howard Park Sauvignon Blanc, Western Australia 2013 $31 Value: excellent

Howard Park go the extra yard to get more interest than most in their sauvignon blanc. It’s more than just simple fruit, although it has plenty of that. There’s a hint of barrel, while it’s intense and clean, smooth and full of character. Delicious. Now to five years. 13 per cent alcohol. 95/100 – Huon’s Wine 360

Food: shellfish platter
