Food match Mussels; spaghetti with fresh herbs, oil and garlic.

Adelaide Hills sauvignon blanc has a good reputation for uncompromising varietal character. The region has few peers in Australia. Deviation Road has aromas of flowering herbs, lime and minerals, leading through a juicy, plump palate with a firm, dry finish. (Screw cap; 13 per cent alcohol.)

Ageing? No.
