Cooks Lot Semillon Sauvignon Blanc 2013

I'm not sure what more winemaker Duncan Cook needs to do to get some more street cred. His wines are stunning value and this SSB is no exception.

A 60/40 blend with the Semillon from Cowra and the Sauvignon Blanc coming from Orange. Previous to this vintage Duncan used Semillon from an unirrigated vineyard. A heatwave wiped this out so an alternate source was found.

Grassy, honeydew melon and passion fruit characters straight up. So fresh and bright I couldn't help but be impressed. Generous flavours are delivered in a nicely balanced wine. Hello fish and chips.

Drink within the next few years.

For twenty bucks, bang that BARGAIN drum...hard!!
