DRINK OF THE WEEK

Silver Ghost Sauvignon Blanc 2014

The problem with sauvignon blanc is that where it's classically done in France it can sometimes be a little bit buttoned up, restrained and austere, but where it's allowed its head, in New Zealand mainly, it can be far too over the top and blousey.

So the answer comes from Chile where the grapes can ripen but benefit from some cooler weather and the wine makers aren't too showy. This wine has just the right balance of gooseberry and apple fruit with enough earthy minerality and sharp acidity to  make it a winner.

Classy.
