Patrick of Coonawarra Fumé Blanc 2015

Here's a Sauvignon Blanc that I enjoyed drinking! I know - it doesn't happen all that often so it's worth getting excited about. Some barrel work never hurt anyone and winemaker Luke Tocaciu has used it well.

There's little Sauvignon Blanc coming out of Coonawarra - less than 1% actually. This Sauv was barrel fermented and left on lees in old French oak puncheons.

Whilst some of the tropical fruit nuances of the variety are still present, they sit behind the delicate creamy and textural delivery courtesy of the barrel work. Mouthfilling and long to finish, I was happy to keep going back for more.

Great buying for the money too.

Drink over the next few years with creamy pasta dishes.

Very good.
