O’Leary Walker Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc

If the punchy impact of Marlborough sauvignon is your style, try this for a more tightly honed option at a bargain price. O’Leary Walker’s mature vineyard at Oakbank in the Adelaide Hills produced a sauvignon concentrated in flavour and acidity and low in alcohol in the drought 2013 season. It’s a racy, lively, vibrant and crunchy style of tangy passionfruit, sour lemon and lime and pretty lemon blossom aromatics. Full flavour rises to balance high-strung acidity, carrying with outstanding persistence. Fantastic value, as ever. $17 at Jim Murphy’s.
