A smashing Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc with great pedigree. It's packed with elegant tropical fruit flavour; passionfruit, melon, guava and fresh gooseberry. The palate is lively, clean and finishes oh so crisply - a great example of the region and varietal.
Awards and Accolades
2015 Vintage: 92 Points - Ray Jordan, West Australian "Ray Jordan rated this wine 92/100 "Little doubt that the Adelaide Hills is one of Australia’s best locations for sav blanc. This one is a beauty. So much vibrant punchy tropical fruit, a trace of herbaceousness and some appealing passionfruit and gooseberry influences. It’s balanced and flavoursome and just terrific for current drinking."
2014 Vintage: 90 Points - Campbell Mattinson, Australian Wine Companion "It's uncomplicated but it delivers juicy fruit flavour in good measure. Passionfruit, cut grass and steel notes, though the emphasis is clearly on the crisp tangy burst of tropical fruit."
From the Winery
In what could be the best vintage of the last ten years, a wonderful growing season prevailed in 2015 and gave rise to a balanced crop of fruit with fine flavours and wonderful natural acidity. Warm days and cool nights were the norm, and vintage arrived slightly ahead of average. Harvest was staggered to enable a range of fruit ripeness and a full spectrum of fruit flavours. Once in the winery, all parcels were vinified separately, allowing us to trial a number of different yeast strains and give us the maximum flexibility when it came time for assembling the multi-faceted blend.
Each parcel of fruit was destemmed, crushed and chilled prior to gentle airbag pressing with the free run fractions maintained separate highlighting the individual fruit flavours. Utilising a range of unique yeast strains, fermentations were run cool, with strict temperature control enabling the retention of the Sauvignon Blanc fruit character. After extensive blending trials, each individual component was chosen for the exceptional flavour components they contributed to the final blend.
