I have said before that Sauvignon Blanc is far down the list when it comes to white varieties that I drink regularly or look forward to drinking. However, I must confess that if more of them end up being as enjoyable to drink as this latest release from Wirra Wira Wines then that is likely to change.
Classic pale straw in colour what is not so 'classic' is the rather softer and restrained aroma. At some points I could smell almost nothing and at times troipcal fruits were clearly present. A very elegant drinking Sauvignon Blanc with evidence of passionfruit and many tropical fruits for which I am highly confident many would end in word 'berry'.
Everything about it is simply softer, more refined and more elegant than I've previously associated with most Sauvignon Blancs. I just loved it!
