2017 Hedges Family Estate CMS Sauvignon Blanc
The 2017 CMS Sauvignon Blanc from Hedges Family Estate is a brand new, freshly bottled offering that is a very nice surprise compared to the thousands of other options you have. This wine doesn't stun you with the color, but rather the incredibly aromatic displays of lemon peel, pineapple and pear. It's not overbearing with lemongrass or fresh cut grass like many of it's brothers and sisters of the same varietal. While that's quite typical of SB, a little can go a long way! And just like 99% of white wines, I tasted this one at right around room temperature of 70 degrees. I do that to get the real feel of the wine. If you're looking for something refreshing, pop this in the fridge and drink it with a slaw dog and fried mushrooms! Made in the traditional Sauvignon Blanc style, but this has a fuller mouthfeel with less brightness than typical SB's. It's a very welcoming surprise and I'm a really big fan!
