WINE OF THE WEEK: Chalkers Crossing 2006 Sauvignon Blanc
WINEMAKER Celine Rousseau at Chalkers Crossing in the Hilltops Region of NSW has spun her magic again with the label’s 2006 Sauvignon Blanc. This smooth-textured wine from fruit from the cool-climate Tumbarumba area has intense citrus and tropical fruit flavours, and reflects very much the European way of making Sauvignon Blanc; restaurateurs who were amongst the first to recognise its potential on its recent release, snapped up 70 per cent of supplies as soon as it hit the market. Pay $18 and don’t go past sharing it with a mixed seafood platter.
