tuesner sauvignon blanc 2009 bucking the trend of nz style sav blanc

Teusner Woodside Sauvignon Blanc 2009 impressed Matt Skinner of the Sydney Sun Herald in April as part of his article about the loss of appeal of NZ Sav Blancs.  He wrote: “If you’re feeling a little jaded with sauvignon blanc – and you wouldn’t be alone if you did – the good news is that there are some really exciting things currently happening with this variety closer to home… Bucking the trend, and in a bid to creeate a richer more textured sytle of wine, great examples are slowly beginning to emerge from regions like…the Adelaide Hills.”

Of Teusner’s Woodside Sauvignon Blanc 2009 he wrote: ” Former Torbreck winemaker Kim Tuesner continues to craft brilliant, understated wines.  This is a cracking sauvignon blanc where a bright nose of passionfruit, gooseberry, lanolin and green herb smells make way for a mouthful of wine that is intense with focused acidity and a racy, drying finish. Try with a caramalised onion tart.”
