Cracka Review

You may think you know the taste of Sauvignon Blanc, but the true taste of French Sauvignon Blanc comes from Sancerre and this style is very different to the styles coming out of New Zealand and Australia. The flavour profile relies more on the minerality of the soils, which are clay and limestone in origin. This edgy wine has a complex nose of florals and berries with a hint of red fruit at the edges. Full in the palate with citrus flavours of orange and grapefruit, hints of stone fruit before a refreshing, dry acid finish. A candidate for oysters or grilled white fish cooked simply with just a squeeze of lemon.
