Winemaker's Notes

While the heart of the wine is the much-admired Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc (which provides the distinctive tropical nose and palate), backed up by Semillon (adding the fine palate structure and delicate herbal edges), a touch of Pinot Gris contributes roundness and spice which lifts the blend to a notch above the ordinary.

Learn About South Australia

The majority of wines from Australia come from this state.

Learn About Bordeaux White Blends

Bordeaux White Blend

Typically made from Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, and bits of Muscadelle, white Bordeaux can be a fully dry table wine or, as in Sauternes, a deliciously sweet dessert wine.
