Natalie's Score: 90/100

Grassy and herbal with quivering lime vibrancy. Pure, fresh, no oak. Bring me a mega big salad!

Sauvignon Blanc food pairings: steam mussels.

I like to steam mussels in Sauvignon Blanc, so a glass for me and several for the pot. Pineapple, gooseberry, some tomato leaf and spice. It’s racy and tangy with its passionfruit and unripe pineapple flavour, has a bit of flintiness and tight acidity married to gentle fruit sweetness – herbal flavours again providing counter-balance. There’s no doubting what it is, or where it’s from and it’s a good example of the style. Score: 91 Source: Gary Walsh, winefront.com.au
