Wicks Estate Sauvignon Blanc, Adelaide Hills 2015 $18
A squeaky-clean example of the style, with pale colour, lime juice and tropical fruit fragrances and some green salad notes. It’s delicate and dry, with bright acidity firming the finish, and a lovely clean aftertaste. (12.5 per cent alcohol; screw cap) Score: 88 ★★★½ – view on huonhooke.com
Ageing: Best within three years.
