Wine of the Week AU

Nepenthe Petraea Sauvignon Blanc 2016, Adelaide Hills, AUD $35

This is a beautifully made and balanced barrel-fermented sauvignon blanc, the spicy oak-laced bouquet of gooseberry varietal fruit is subtle and well-judged. It’s tightly-focused, concentrated and long on the palate. Delicious, lush fruit flavour. Aged in 2500-litre French oak. (Screwcap)
