Buy of the Week AU

Domaine des Aubuisières Vouvray Cuvée de Silex 2016, Loire Valley, AUD $34

This is attractively perfumed, floral, lightly honeyed, youthful and bright. It’s a nervy style with slaty mineral aromas combining with fresh appley fruit. The flavour is intense and lively, with refreshing acidity and a subtle touch of sweetness. The aftertaste is long and lip-smackingly delicious. (screwcap)
