Yvonne’s pick . . .
It’s the 120g per litre of natural sugar that makes the Johner Estate Noble Gladstone Sauvignon Blanc 2017, $22, so intensely luxurious with any dessert following a citrus persuasion. Plus its passionfruit curd complexity, manuka honey and toffee notes are tweaked with a hint of vanilla, making it eye-rollingly lovely to sip with vanilla citrus terrine. While the sugar levels are peaking, the acid balance keeps this wine walking like a Wallenda across the tightrope of your tongue. A magical sweet treat from Martinborough. johner-estate.com
