About the variety
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. 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.
Appearance: Pale yellow core with green hued rim
Aroma: Zesty lemon and pink grapefruit. Bright and aromatic.
Palate: Racy acidity with citrus, white peach, and hints of orchard blossom. Vibrant with good structure and a clean, crisp finish.
Summary: A well balanced Sauvignon Blanc highlighting all the trademark notes of the Adelaide Hills.
Perfectly matched to a Vietnamese seafood salad, or chevre.
