The fruit for this Sauvignon Blanc is from South Australia’s premium cool climate grape growing region, the Adelaide Hills which has an enviable and growing reputation for magnificent white grapes. Due to the ideal growing season in January and February, the 2017 vintage has delivered exceptional quality and flavour.
Sauvignon Blanc parcels were harvested when grapes displayed perfect balance between sugar, acid and tropical fruit flavours. Fruit was destemmed then crushed and sent straight to press. Juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks at cool temperatures to help encourage varietal expression and flavour. Post fermentation, wine parcels were blended to achieve the desired wine style with a lifted bouquet and fine fruit profile.
An intense nose of tropical fruits and sweet melon with citrus tones. The palate shows hints of honeydew and passionfruit. Generous flavour and fruit length combine to present a beautifully balanced wine.
