A brilliant Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc from a winemaker described as 'a master of his art' by Halliday. Floral aromas mingle with delicate pear and gooseberry on the nose, giving way to a light, juicy and fresh palate. Relatively low sugar content keeps the finish zingy with length. Overall it is light and fragrant, with tight structure - begging to be enjoyed over the next 12-24 months.
Awards and Accolades
2015 Vintage: 95 Points - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion "Hand-picked, but otherwise conventional cold fermentation in stainless steel. A picture perfect display of all the tropical fruits (except durian) you've ever tasted; even a Dutch master couldn't display them on a single canvas. Despite this embarrassment of riches, the palate finishes fresh and crisp."
From the Winery
Crop levels of 2.5kg/vine were close to our long term average. It was another early ripening year with full flavour development . Hand picking occurred in cool weather on the 1st to the 3rd of March. Heat degree day summation for the year was 1310; a little over our long term average of 1270 Heat Degree Days (HDD).
A mild February was crucial to flavour development and acid retention. Our vines are now 28 years old and show the benefits of maturity with good balance of crop and leaf plus more stable crops. The growing season was dry with 132mm of rain Oct to March below our long term average of 229 mm. Disease pressure was consequently low and ripe healthy grapes harvested.
