It was great to get along to the Sydney Cellar Door, held recently in Hyde Park, and taste some wines from NSW. A good time was had by all and I enjoyed catching up with some fellow teachers.
Orange-based Angullong Wines which had a presence at the Sydney Cellar Door has recently released its 2013 Sauvignon Blanc. Bright lemon in colour with green tinges around the rim of the glass, the nose is grassy and herbaceous with tropical grapefruit flavours coming through. The palate is crisp and refreshing with vibrant tropical fruits and herbal, grassy undertones. The finish is dry with lots of lingering fruit (rrp $20). Another Angullong stablemate is the 2013 Pinot Grigio. Pale straw in colour with green highlights on the rim, the nose offers citrus by the bucket-load. The palate shows mouth-watering acidity with those same pineapple, green apple flavours more than evident. This dry-style wine is very vivacious and racy (rrp $20).
