Henschke Coralinga Sauvignon Blanc 2007
Sauvignon Blanc from South Australia, Australia
Very pale green gold in colour. The nose is delicate, fragrant with gooseberry, feijoa fruit, tropical hints and freshly cut grass. Sweet fruit with ripe gooseberry flavours; kiwi fruit and herb nuances are displayed on the crisp palate. Good structure, balance and length.
Australian Wine Companion - "Clean, fresh aromas of citrus blossom and passionfruit; builds nicely on the palate and fruit-driven finish. Screwcap."
Wine Spectator - "Fresh, lively and compelling for its range of pear, grapefruit and mineral flavors and for the generosity of its finish. The flavors hang around a long time."
The Wine Advocate - "The 2007 Coralinga Sauvignon Blanc was tank fermented and aged. Light straw-colored, on the nose it offers plenty of baking spices, apple, and citrus. On the palate it is crisp and Sancerre-like with vibrant acidity, ripe flavors, and a fruit-filled finish. "

The Henschke family have been making wine since Johann Christian Henschke planted a small vineyard at Keyneton in Eden Valley in 1862. Cyril Henschke pioneered varietal and single-vineyard wines, including the world-famous Shiraz wines, Hill of Grace and Mount Edelstone in the 1950s. Fifth-generation Stephen Henschke and his wife Prue are one of the most lauded winemaking teams in the world, and international awards recognize the complementary nature of their roles, Stephen as winemaker and Prue as viticulturist. To protect their vineyards for future generations they have implemented an inspiring nursery program to preserve the genetic heritage of their oldest pre-phylloxera vines as well as continuing to lead the way with organic and biodynamic principals to enrich their land.

About South AustraliaView a map of South Australia wineries McLaren Vale, Coonawarra and Barossa Valley, South Australia produces some of the finest red wines of the country, and some say in the world. White wines gain their reputation from the distinctive Rieslings of Clare Valley.
About AustraliaLike the United States, which is about the same size, Australia's winemaking regions are huddled into one or two pockets of the country. The state of South Australia, which produces about 60% of the country's wine, also has the most wineries and sub-regions, including McLaren Vale, Clare Valley, Coonawarra and Barossa Valley. New South Wales is home to the Hunter Valley, while the smaller, southern state of Victoria is best known for theYarra Valley. Head way west to the very large state of Western Australia and you'll find the tiny region of Margaret River at the southern tip.

Alcohol By Volume GuideMost wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
