Winemaker's Notes

Sauvignon Blanc is a regional speciality in the cooler Adelaide Hills. The wine is unoaked to maximize its fresh varietal character and overall tangy, zippy flavors. It has more middle palate and length than more herbaceous styles. A young refreshing wine with pure varietal flavors and lively acidity. A benchmark for Australian Sauvignon Blanc.

"New Zealand has embraced the screwcap with the same fervour as Clare Valley has for its riesling, but for its sauvignon blanc, and they were right to do so. Punchy, aromatic, gooseberry, green apple and passionfruit aromas and flavours permeate a bright, breezy and deliciously crisp wine."
-James Halliday

This wine is overrated and nothing to write home about. You can buy a much cheaper sauvignon blanc from New Zealand which will give you comparable or better robust flavor.
