Winemaker Notes

Deliciously ripe, tropical Sauvignon Blanc, with interestingly intense citrus and floral notes. These are balanced by the herbal notes that are typical of Sauvignon, but which can dominate 'greener' styles. Its best feature is probably the palate, which exhibits true balance between the fruit described above, and the 'structure' of the wine: principally acid and alcohol. Arguably the most even, balanced and well-structured of our four vintages to date, with persistent fruit, we are delighted with the results of the 2001 vintage.

"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."

Nepenthe: described by Homer in The Odyssey as an Egyptian herbal drink so powerful that it eases grief and banishes sorrow from the mind.

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.
