2016 Eldridge Estate Fume Blanc
Wine Rating 
 
95

The slightest yellow hue in the glass with the nose providing what you would expect in terms of passionfruit and a herbaceous kick, but this wine has so much more with background notes of shiitake mushroom and oyster shell that make it one of the most intriguing Sauvignon Blanc’s i have tried.

An elegant wine that builds in structure and depth across the palate, gentle herbs are supported by textural acidity and tart passionfruit. The finish is a long extrapolation of the palate and underpinned by wet slate. This is a serious and enjoyable wine.
