Whistler 2016 Semillon Sauvignon Blanc

REGION: BAROSSA

PRICE: $20

FOOD: NICOISE SALAD

★★★★

Next-genner Whistler winemaker Josh Pfeiffer has upped the energy levels coming out of this estate, and three early release easy drinking whites are indicative of a new era under way. This shows a noticeable musk character that helps to override the sauvignon’s often dominant herbal punch — Josh says it comes regularly from one of the source vineyards. The result is a lovely balance of fruit and pith, sweet floral notes and a refreshing drinkability. Try the Riesling as well.
