Buy of the Week AU

Brown Brothers 18 Eighty-Nine Sauvignon Blanc 2016, Tasmania, AUD $18.89

It’s not Marlborough, but very good Tasmania, the flavour intensity greater than most and the price a steal. The aromas include fresh and dried herbs, with a note of forest underbrush. The palate is dry and savoury, light but with some depth, finishing clean, dry and persistent. (Screwcap)
