Pertaringa Wines 'Scarecrow' Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Four years ago on a road-trip across some of Southern Australia's wine producing states, Pertaringa's 'Scarecrow' was a favourite for the crew, pairing well with various fruits de la mer enjoyed.

Roll forward a few years to this latest release and it's fair to say the wine has altered form a little in that intervening period. It still carries its hallmark tropicals, with hints of creamy lemon and a little underlying herbal note.

However its on the palate where the difference is most marked. It shows itself with a little edginess, with an acidic line jabbing about the place, the textural nuances here are the marked differentiator - a natural evolution in style to soften some of the acid the variety is known for and also to enhance feel in the mouth. Still works for me. 89 - Good
