About This Wine
Winemaking: Crush, destem, gently air bag press. Clear settle juice and cold ferment to dryness. Our approach is to retain the fresh aromatics of the fruit and not to generate any harsh extractives which produce coarseness on the palate. Lively, tightly structured wine but with a generous, supple mid palate and a fine, long, savoury finish. Aroma of lifted aroma of pear, gooseberry and hints of flowers. Fresh, fragrant and complex. Nothing heavy or vegetal. Fresh fruit with a lively juicy richness on the palate and a lingering, zingy acid edge to the finish. Long and delicate.
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.
