O'Leary Walker Sauvignon Blanc 2013

I was excited on two fronts when this sample arrived. For one, I knew I had a well made wine in my hands coming from O'Leary Walker. And secondly, it was my first look at a 2013 vintage release.

Whilst I didn't like this 2013 Sauvignon Blanc as much as the 2012, this is still quite smart. And let's face it, I loved the 2012!

More grassy than the previous vintage, there is still an abundance of tropical fruit wrapped up inside. Lemon grass and fresh cut green apple flavours added interest.

Fresh, crisp with zippy acidity.

To Australian Savvy drinkers, rid yourselves of the love affair with the sameness seen in every tube from across the ditch and embrace the great wines we make here in Australia. Use this as your new weapon this summer in your quest to quench your thirst.

For $17.50, light up the word... bargain!
