Out of Step Wine Co. Lusatia Park Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Dave Chatfield and Nathan Reeves, two mates who work their day jobs for some pretty high profile Yarra wineries (Oakridge and Sticks respectively) have a little side project going under the Out of Step Wine Co label.

This 2013 SB - their second release I believe - is on the money. Fresh herb, asparagus, the faintest hint of tropical fruit peaking its nose around the corner. It has a subtlety to it - a good thing - and an allure, a prettiness that yields a little more as you go back to it.

Sees a touch of lime and fresh herb flowing onto the palate. Good balance, deftly treading a line without putting a foot out of place. Tasty to boot - of the three SBs I opened and tasted, this was the one I went back to - with a touch of texture for interest. Smart. 90
