The 2007 vintage growing season was overall very warm and dry.
Spring frosts affected certain parts of the Adelaide Hills, hence quantities
were down a little but not dramatically. The Adelaide Hills had a good
vintage in terms of quantity and quality with the flavours of Sauvignon
Blanc more in the tropical and less herbaceous spectrum. Palate weight
Whole bunches are crushed, chilled and pressed then undergo
fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks.
Does not undergo any malolactic fermentation as we are looking
to retain fruit purity and natural acidity.
A benchmark for Australian Sauvignon Blanc. Made from 100%
Adelaide Hills grapes, the wine is unwooded to maximize varietal punch.
The aroma has restrained sauvignon grassiness coupled with riper fruit
characters. The palate is fresh and lively with pure varietal flavours
and crisp acidity.
One of the best sauvignon blancs I have had this summer. Also very good (but not better) are Kim Crawford and Palliser.
One of the best sauvignon blancs I have had this summer. Easy, refreshing wine for the summer. Better than higher rated Sauv Blancs like Kim Crawford, etc.
I bought this wine on a whim, and I was pleasantly surprised. It has a very nice, crisp taste, but is not too acidic. I especially loved the tartness of it. It has some sweetness to it, but is not sickeningly sweet.
