| /

Region: Adelaide Hills, SA
Grape: Sauvignon Blanc
First Glance: clean and classic, cool climate Sauv B

Made mainly from estate grown fruit, with a little support from a few trusted growers.

Hand-picked and fermented cool in stainless steel, to retain purity and varietal character. A clean and restrained take.

The Review:
93 points, Erin Larkin, Robert Parker Wine Advocate
This is the benchmark for (tank fermented, pure) Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc. The 2022 Sauvignon Blanc has sweet green pea, green apple skins, juniper, rosemary, a hint of nashi pear and layers of jasmine tea and spice. This is, as usual, very fine and spicy, with purity and textural complexity side by side. Pear skin. Pretty.
