Tasting Notes:

The fruit for this wine was picked in the middle of the night, right at the cusp of its peak fruit flavour. Using an aromatic yeast strain, the wine was fermented in stainless steel, allowing the fresh tropical and herbaceous characters, to show through. This wine also spent a small amount of time on lees. The wine was lightly fined, stabilised, and filtered, and bottled for early release, to maintain the wine’s vibrancy, and acidity.

This Sauvignon Blanc is fresh and vibrant on the nose with an aromatic fusion of zesty gooseberry, lime and grapefruit with subtle tropical notes with a hint of bell pepper, dried herbs and restrained grassiness precede a lively palate. The palate is crisp and fresh with gooseberry, citrus, and a crunchy green apple acidity. This liveliness is balanced with soft tropical fruits and passionfruit flavours, hints of fresh herbs, and a lingering citrus finish.

Wine Region:

The Adelaide Hills is Australia's most vibrant cool climate wine region. With over 90 wine labels and 48 cellar doors, it is acknowledged internationally for its distinctive premium wines, viticulture and stunning scenery. The region is located in the Mount Lofty Ranges east of Adelaide, the capital city of South Australia. Stretching in a narrow band approximately 70km long, the highest vineyards are sited between 600-650 metres altitude in areas such as Crafers, Summertown, Piccadilly and Carey Gully.

The Adelaide Hills is one of the largest geographical wine regions in Australia, and amongst the most diverse in terms of climate, soil and topography. The region consists of two registered sub-regions, Lenswood and Piccadilly Valley. Bordered by the Barossa Valley to the North and McLaren Vale and Langhorne Creek to the South, the Adelaide Hills is the cool climate jewel between our warmer lower lying cousins.

Importantly the Adelaide Hills is also the closest Wine Region to the CBD of Adelaide making it a favourite quick getaway, weekend long lunch or cellar door tour destination.

Food Pairing:

Oysters, seafood, crustaceans, smoked, poached & steamed fish, white meats, poultry, fried rice, soft & Blue cheeses, lightly spiced pizza, risotto & dishes with Italian peas, green capsicum or asparagus.
