Lemon freshness and under-stated in a good way. Crisp and pure with good acidity. Great food wine.

Eccentric indeed. Savagnin, until recently, was grown almost exclusively in the tiny French appellation of Jura. This local version from John Howard is unique in its own way but is clearly celebrating the Jura style, from the traditional bottle to the fascinating aromas and flavours captured within. Aromas of sweet pear, starfruit, nettles, white blossoms and sweet herbs. Dry, crisp, impactfully flavourful. Surprising and enticing, with a long, complex, evolving finish. Pair with seafood pasta, or green salad with grilled scallops. Source: Vintages Wine Panel
