Shaw and Smith Sauvignon Blanc 2015

So fifteen is being hailed as a great Hills vintage. On the basis of this classy Sauvignon Blanc, you'd believe the hype.

Classic aromatics, albeit a little paired back, controlled - nettle, a little grassiness, some tropicals and hints of butter menthol.

Abounds with citrus, pithy grapefruit that cuts a swathe through the palate and carries with it a shape and phenolic texture often lacking with the variety. Easy to drink - you'd go here easily. 93
