Buy of the Week AU

Shaw + Smith Sauvignon Blanc 2018, Adelaide Hills, AUD $28

I can’t recall being more impressed with a new S+S savvy than this one. It has a wonderfully fragrant bouquet of lemon, lime and grapefruit, with background passionfruit and floral notes. Intense and fresh in the mouth; it’s light, vibrant and ultra-refreshing. (Screwcap)
