Helen’s Hill Ingram Rd. Sauvignon Blanc 2013HH

Style: Dry white

Region: Yarra Valley, VIC

Tasting Note: I can honestly say that Helen’s Hill is one of my favourite Yarra Valley wineries. They represent the typical Yarra Valley varieties perfectly, while also tiptoeing into the realm of the experimental. Even their Sauv Blanc excites me and that’s saying something because 9 times out of 10 I need to be force fed Sauvignon Blanc to even try it. The nose is grassy and zesty while the palate is a lively combination of tropical fruits and lime: grassy and elegant with great acidity and length.

Final Say: One of the better Sauvignon Blancs I’ve tasted this year (yes, yes, we’re only three months in, I know). $17.99 a bottle

Score: 17.5 out of 20
