Angullong Orange Sauvignon Blanc 2014
There’s an extra level of quality about these ’14 Angullong whites. Almost as if winemaker Jon Reynolds has gained a new grasp of how to use the fruit.
Green straw in colour this is particularly aromatic juice – aromatic yeasts doing their stuff to give melon, guava and tropical fruit. The palate is sharp edged, but there’s a smoky line too, almost as if this has seen some barrel time (which it hasn’t to my knowledge).
A simple style but a refreshing one, this juicy wine is better-than-average stuff.
