Sauvignon Blanc 2023
We believe the Adelaide Hills is one of the best spots in the world to grow Sauvignon Blanc - the fruit for this wine is sourced from the high elevations just outside Kangarilla. The elevated position of the vineyard produces great acidity alongside intense aromatic elements. This fresh style exhibits both tropical and herbaceous characters, with a fruit forward palate for easy drinking.
Cold night-time temperatures were a prominent feature of harvest 2022, causing elevated natural acidity to occur in the vineyard. Warm sunny days created ideal conditions for flavour development and even ripening. The Sauvignon Blanc fruit was harvested at peak flavour ripeness then processed and fermented cold to ensure the retention of delicate fruit aromas. After fermentation, sulphur was added to restrict malolactic fermentation before cold stabilisation, earth filtration and bottling.
This fresh, aromatic style of Sauvignon Blanc shows both tropical and herbaceous characters. Clean and crisp on the palate, this wine is fruit forward and easy drinking. A textbook refreshing style for early appreciation. Always serve chilled.
A delicate fish, such as pan seared King George Whiting or Sole.
