Berton Vineyards Metal Label Sauvignon Blanc 2016

The Berton vineyard is one of those workhorse wineries that sources fruit from near and afar. Usually based out of Yenda, near NSW. This one is sourced from one of my favourite Australian wine region names: Padthaway.

Pulpy passionfruit propels from the glass, before more herbaceous notes of cut red capsicum (yes red, more sweet than green) and wet rolled grass clippings. Has a zesty, arugula/rocket peppery note too. Palate keeps to the nose: passionfruit but with light melon tinges. Grassy nettles keep the sweetness at bay. Acidity isn’t quite as sharp as one would want to make it more interesting, but the flavours are correct, (if not lasting long). There’s a lot worse for the price.

RRP: $12

Alc: 12%
