The Review 

"Savagnin from Adelaide Hills from Balhannah and from Leko wines, the side label outside Clare Valley for the brothers Koerner.

Lovely drink here, super saline, a little nutty, lots of waxy, lemony characters, some fennel and alpine herb notes and a cool, refreshing wash of tart, nashi pear. It’s lively and lovely, a textural white of high interest and electric crackle. Fantastic bistro wine for skolling by the glass. Right on. Drink it right now, not quite cold." 93Pts, Mike Bennie, The Wine Front
