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!!
