This Sauvignon Blanc comes from Australia's premium region for the varietal. The nose displays fresh citrus and tropical fruit aromas underpinned by a fresh cut grass. Offering a generous mouthfeel and a light, crisp, fresh and clean palate, this is just begging to be enjoyed on a late summer evening.
This zesty ripe and clear bright explosion is pure Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc, sourced from 4 separate vineyards throughout the Adelaide Hills, Piccadilly Valley through Woodside to Lobethal in the East. The benefits of this fruit sourcing, is it provides a broad range of both the aroma and flavour profiles that is evident on both the nose and the palate. The fruit was crushed, chilled, gently pressed, then transferred to temperature controlled stainless steel vats where the wine underwent a controlled fermentation.
All fruit parcels were crushed and fermented together in the same vessels. The success or otherwise of this technique will only be evident at the point of consumption.
From the Winery
South Australia represents only 9% of the Australian population but is home to 50% of the Australian wine industry.
GISA Wines takes its name from the patriotic nature of the owner, making wine from fruit that comes exclusively from South Australia.
GISA is Located in the Old Penfold’s Sparkling Winery, at the top of The Parade, at 578 The Parade Auldana. Adjacent to the Magil Estate vineyard, nestled at the base of the foothills, GISA is an acronym for Geographic Indicator South Australia. The ‘GI’ is the region from which fruit is sourced, and this is a legal requirement when making statements as to the origin of the wine on the label.
Our wines are made using a combination of traditional winemaking techniques -basket pressing and hand plunging – and the best modern practices to capture the character of the grapes.
GISA is a small family owned and run winery, which means we are often forced to wear many hats. We have wine scattered throughout several wineries from Waikerie in the Riverland through Woodside and the Piccadilly Valley and some at GISA cellars at Auldana. We do this as different wineries are better suited to the production techniques that match our desired end result for individual wines. That and we don’t have the range of tank necessary.
We aspire to make interesting, premium wines which reflect the regional character and grape variety. GISA wines are made in very limited quantities.
