About This Wine
Vibrant deep plum purple with a purple hue.
Lifted aromas of blackcurrant and mulberry with hints of raspberry, blueberry and redcurrants, supported with integrated dried herbs, chocolate and subtle wood spice.
The palate shows freshness of fruit, primary blackcurrant, redcurrants and fleshy plum with integrated chocolate and mocha notes from the oak. Great body with fullness, length and balanced lively acidity. The tannin structure is elegant and velvety and is matched well to the weight and persistence of flavour. Medium to full bodied, with a long persistent flavoursome finish ensures early drinkability. This wine will suit any mildly flavoured red meat dish.

The Adelaide Hills is one of the largest geographical wine regions in Australia, and amongst the most diverse in terms of climate, soil and topography. Because of this, many different varietals are planted here with the most dominant being Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. It is generally thought of as a cooler region, especially when compared to neighbouring Barossa to the north and Mclaren vale and Langhorne Creek to the south.
NZ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc has been popular in Australia for a while now, but Adelaide hills Sauvignon Blanc (the most planted grape in the region) could be considered the Aussie Savvy Blanc. From www.adelaidehillswine.com.au about their Sauvignon Blanc: “Wines that are textured, edgy, vibrant and dry with exceptional fruit definition, length and crispness that marry superbly with summer seafood.”
You can also find some cool climate shiraz from the Adelaide hills, defying the more common big bold style that is usually seen in Australian Shiraz.
