Wirra Wirra Hiding Champion Sauvignon Blanc 2015

For a Hills SB it manages to eschew the overt grassiness that I oft associate with that variety and region combo. Instead of focussing on what it’s not, it’s about vanilla, florals, yes there’s some of that grassiness, but it’s also augmented with a little lime curd and lychee. 

There’s a bit of cut and thrust to it: line, length and width. Tropical fruit, some lemongrass - would go alright with ‘Thai’ - to generically lump all cuisine from that country together - lime, and a general citrus mien.


Good length, grip, rare amongst the variety that it had me yearning for more, reeling me back.  A yes from me 91
