James Halliday – Most attractive and clear crimson-purple; as ever with Geoff Weaver, a wine of impeccable breed and elegance, aided further by the vintage; the red and black cherry fruit of the bouquet and palate has a gently savoury flourish, the finish long and well balanced.
About This Wine
Lifted primary cherry fruit with hints of earth and spice. Distinctly Pinot. Ripe fruit, complex juicy and supple. Generously flavoured with a lingering, drying savoury tannin on the finish.
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.
