S.C. Pannell Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc 2016
This wine is full of the regional and varietal characters of Sauvignon Blanc. Grapefruit, guava, passionfruit, green pea and fresh cut herbs are all here. This is a wine with a very fragrant, complex and aromatic profile. Accompanying the cooler green spectrum of flavours is a mouth-filling more textural style of Sauvignon Blanc. The palate is balanced, flavoursome and a dry, with a persistent finish and beautiful crisp natural acidity.
James Halliday – Hand-picked and sorted; free-run juice cool-fermented in tank. There is a subliminal savoury edge to the bouquet and palate, possibly from more than one yeast at work, and also to crisp, crunch acidity. You pick up the extra level of flavour from ripe (not overripe) fruit on the back-palate and finish. Has the X-factor many Sauvignon Blancs lack.
In a mixed or straight case: $25.64
