Wineglass Bay 2015 Sauvignon Blanc

Tasmania is far better known for chardonnay and pinot noir than it is for sauvignon blanc, but Freycinet Vineyard winemaker Claudio Radenti believes the East Coast of the island state is particularly well suited to savvy. This is a very lively, intense wine, partially barrel fermented in older oak, although tropical fruit flavours and vivacious acid are the driving forces. Probably best enjoyed in its youth, it is a vibrant thirst quencher that would provide a very good match to Tasmanian seafood. Very long, very lively, extremely refreshing. $28.
