South Africa's Kleine Zalze
Sauvignon is officially the UK's favourite white grape - this 2015 saffer shows all the expressive aromatics that middle England has come to expect of the variety, but with a sophisticated edge.
2015 Sauvignon Blanc Cellar Section (£9.90, independents) aromatic cut grass and nettles, a whiff of pungency and ripe, tropical fruit. So far, so textbook well-made New World Sauvignon. Additional interest is provided by the structural complexity, minerally underpinnings and sheer quality of the fruit.
Match with roast pork, monkfish in herb broth or tuna carpaccio.
