A sessional type Sauv Blanc. Why swim in the tsunami of New Zealand Sauv when there's tasty wines like this in our backyard?
A 2015 release for around $20 - not often you see a wine at that price point held back that long, but here we are. There's plenty on offer too.
There's an award at the Hunter Valley Wine Show for the winemaker of the best Verdelho - it's a tiara. Make of that what you will. This comes from what is said to be a top Verdelho site.

If I owned a winery I'd name a wine after me. Why the hell not? That's what Soumah boss Brett Butcher has done here, and good on him. A blend of Syrah, Cabernet and Nebbiolo - I like his style.

I had a number of Shiraz samples lined up on the bench. Some were double the price of this wine. Some were a little more fancy you could say. But this is what I kept coming back to. It's a wine you just want to drink. No frills. No bells and whistles. Just solid, damn good drinking Shiraz. Zero in on it I say.
