Buy of the Week AU

Mike Press Sauvignon Blanc 2016, Adelaide Hills, AUD $13

The colour is pale and the bouquet is pungently aromatic, varietal and appealing. It has intensity way above its price, and the finish is clean and dry, the one drawback being slight alcohol hotness. Terrific flavour; great value. (13.9 per cent alcohol; screw-cap)
