Description

Producer Profile

The Regional Selections represent vineyard & varietal combinations which are recognised for excellence. The motivation is quality, and the result is a range of wines which are hand made from specific vineyards to bring you the best of each growing region. Sauvignon Blanc derives from the Bordeaux region of France, where it made its claim to fame (alongside Cabernet Franc), as the parent grape to the noble Cabernet Sauvignon. Sauvignon Blanc vines are vigorous and tend to ripen early but interestingly, develops buds late.

Winemaking

Fruit for our Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from the cool climate Adelaide Hills where the high altitude (400m) is especially favourable to this earlier ripening variety. Skin contact is limited, and fermentation occurs in stainless steel, to ensure a fresh, zesty finish with lifted aromatics.

Tasting Note

Pale straw with a yellow green rim. Zesty lemon and pink grapefruit. Bright and aromatic. Steely acidity with green apples, lime and hints of lemon blossom. A vibrant palate with good structure and a clean, crisp finish. A well balanced Sauvignon Blanc highlighting all the trademark notes of the Adelaide Hills. Perfectly matched to a bucket of fresh prawns.
