About This Wine
Fresh red strawberries, cherries and black fruits, layered with a touch of earthy spice from some whole bunch fermentation. Juicy cooked rhubarb and green strawberries with a soft and supple palate. There is a hint of spice and fresh herbs , mouthwatering natural acidity and fine tannins results in a textural and long flavour, with just a touch of fine French oak.
Winemaking: Grapes are handpicked and all 5 clones were kept separate. 25% whole bunches were used. The remaining fruit was de-stemmed and chilled with minimal crushing into small open top fermenters. Only the best barrels are then selected for our Amos wines. The wine was then bottled with minimal clarification and So2.
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.
