Catlin Cheese and Kisses Fume Blanc 2021 (RRP $32 WM $26.90 )

Sauvignon blanc is synonymous with the Adelaide Hills, but this one might surprise you. It’s a funky little number with its own distinct personality. The sulphitic edge and mouth feel, combined with tropical and citrus overtones, will no doubt appeal to a group of followers looking for a wine made with minimal intervention and representing a strong sense of terroir. Handpicked from a cool climate pocket in Woodside, gently whole bunch pressed, wild fermented in French oak barriques and left on lees for 6 months, the result was worth the wait.
