Teusner Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc

The first 2012 to make the cut for Wine Taste Weekly has been early all its life – picked in early January, three weeks earlier than usual and bottled in March, the earliest current vintage wine the bottling line has ever handled. It’s all the better for it, too, taking Teusner Sauvignon far from tropical fruit territory, to a refreshingly refined place of citrus blossom, stone fruits and subtle herbaceous complexity. $17 at Discount Wines.
