2018 Antipodes Sauvignon Blanc
This is from the second vintage of the antipodean project of legendary Burgundian winemaker Jean-Jacques Morel. Having always been gentle, intuitive winemaker, this is J.J. breaking away from the strict dogma of the French appellation system to make the kind of wines that would never be allowed back in his home of Saint-Aubin.
This is Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc made in a very savoury, high acid style that is nothing like the fruit bombs that you find at the RSL. This is more about texture and subtle nutty flavours leaving it tasting more like Sauvignon from France. Funny that.
