Another cheap euro import courtesy of Fourth wave, this time a Francophile savvy from the Aude Valley in the south. It’s certainly full of flavour and personality at the price; citrus, hints of honey, green herbs and a fulsome palate delivers passionfruit, cut grass, spice and clean crisp acids. Its more interesting at the price than most Aussie versions and would be perfect lunchtime quaffer with a goats cheese salad or similar. Patrick Haddock. The Wining Pom.
French Sauvignon Blanc is a different creature to the sauvignons of New Zealand- more subdued and savoury, as this drop from south of France shows. Heathland, citrus, mineral aromas; lip-smacking at a bargain price. 88/100. Ralph Kyte-Powell. The Age Epicure.
