Deviation Road 2015 Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvignon blanc is derided by the wine snobs, sneered at by wine wankers and ignored by wine trendoids. But the reality is that a good savvy blanc, crisp, fresh and lively, is a perfect choice for an after-work tipple or summer treat on the terrace. And they don't come much better than this excellent little number from an Adelaide Hills winery that is probably best known for its stellar bubblies. There is plenty of intensity to be enjoyed here with a good balance between tropical fruit salad flavours, lean citrus notes and herbaceous crispness. The finish is lean and clean with refreshing flinty minerality and brisk acid. Forget what the hipsters say and enjoy a well-chilled glass or two. Available nationally and distributed by Negociants. $24.
