Buy of the Week AU

Ara Single Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2016, Marlborough, AUD $20

This is very fresh and youthfully vibrant, the aroma sweetly perfumed with feijoa and other tropical fruit scents, while the palate is intense and refreshing, with crisp acid tang balanced by intense fruit and a hint of sweetness. A very appealing regional style. Great value. (Screwcap)
