Cook's Lot Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Orange probably produces some of the best Sauvignon Blanc fruit in the country - well so I think anyway. I'm not a huge Sauvignon Blanc fan but I do like what this region has to offer.

Front and centre, here is another example. Duncan Cook continues to pump out good juice at the bargain price of $20.

This Sauvignon Blanc is passionfruit and pineapple city. Flavours hang on to the front of the palate and acid is certainly in check. None of the greeny, cat's piss sameness which floods the market from NZ. This is purely fruit driven delivering deliciously dangerous drinking.

Clean and fresh flavours with some cut herb highlights. Most definitely the tropical characters steal the show. Crisp with balanced acidity. Yum and yum.

It is hard not to keep topping up the glass. Rip in!
