Nepenthe Sauvignon Blanc 2001
"The 2001 Sauvignon Blanc (100% Sauvignon) is impressive. It boasts copious quantities of intense, honeyed tropical fruit, melons, and figs along with a medium-bodied, vibrant, concentrated personality."
Up here in the cool heights of the Adelaide Hills, Nepenthe produces some soul reposing potions of their own: uncompromising wines of outstanding quality and internationally recognised distinction. Wines that, strangely enough, have been impressing both critics and consumers with their varietal faithfulness and subtle Adelaide Hills nuances. But wines this good undertake a journey as arduous and epic as Homer's famous hero - a journey that Nepenthe, like the gods, determine with immutable fascination.
Nepenthe's commitment to consistently high quality wine starts with the land. In fact, they're so dedicated to quality that they formed two specialized companies to deal with the demands of their high altitude vines - Nepenthe Viticulture and Nepenthe Irrigation.
