Kelvedon Estate 2011 Sauvignon Blanc

One of the stars of the recent White Wine Weekend in Hobart, this Tasmanian East Coast wine has to be regarded as one of Tasmania’s (and the mainland for that matter) best sauvignon blancs. Made in a thoroughly modern style, this is a vivacious young wine, clean and fresh with bright fruit flavours but also some intriguing complexity on the palate thanks to six weeks on lees. Soft and delicate with hints of restrained tropical fruit, it finishes with crisp, appealing acidity. $28.
