TROPHY, BEST DRY WHITE WINE | Riverland Wine Show
GOLD MEDAL | Riverland Wine Show
Here's a result. This zesty sauvignon blanc was crowned Best Dry White Wine of Show at the 2021 Riverlands Wine Show beating off a host of other contenders from a wine region that accounts for 25% of Australia's total wine crush. Boom!
We've always supported Oxford Landing (it's part of the renowned Yalumba portfolio) - but it's been years since we looked at this quaffer sauv blanc seriously. The 2021 is the newest addition to the Oxford Landing range at Advintage HQ and it's bright and vibrant with crunchy notes in the citrus and tropical fruit spectrum. It's softer and rounder than our local options but sauvignon blanc's fresh acidity and layers of exotic fruits are there for all to taste.
With good Kiwi Sauv almost impossible to source at this price these days, it's a brilliant anytime option and a Trophy at the Riverland Wine Show seals the deal. Sensational value.
The winery writes "Pale straw in colour with a tinge of green. Fresh and zesty aromas of passionfruit, lemongrass and freshly cut hay. Light-bodied showing layers of fresh citrus and papaya flavours. Fine, crunchy acidity on the finish is persistent and utterly delicious when paired with a summer salad and vinaigrette dressing."
