Oxford Landing Estates Sauvignon Blanc
Oxford Landing is the benchmark against which I compare all sub-$10 sauvignons and I am yet to find anything that is its equal. The cool 2012 season made for long and consistent ripening, which proved to be a blessing for this early harvest style, producing great synergy of punchy passionfruit and crunchy lemon zest flavours with a cut of grass and a long, refreshing finish. A proportion fermented using wild yeast on full solids is more than you’d expect at this price, and helps to build the mid-palate. This clean, fruit-focused style is set for summer quaffing and at $7 (at Boccaccio and Jim’s Cellars) we can all afford to keep a bottle in the fridge for emergency entertaining.
