Delicate, quietly complex sauvignon blanc of fine texture and precise feeling fruit character. It smells of light tropical fruits, passionfruit, green herbs, the palate taking on similar characters in a very compact, faintly silky-lacy frame. That little lilt of texture is just so lovely, blink and you’ll miss, chill to much and it’s gone, but it’s there and it elevates the wine. Very good here.

Lemon and barley. Thistles and passionfruit. Citrus. This is lively and well-flavoured, its fresh fruit jumping up to greet you.

ADELAIDE HILLSLocated to the east of Adelaide,the Adelaide Hills is part of the Mount Lofty Ranges. Considered a cool-climate region, most vineyards are situated at elevations between 450 to 550 metres. Rainfall is relatively high and spring frosts often pose problems. Hot northerly winds also make bush fires a real threat in the region. Adelaide Hills is a jigsaw of meso-climates, with the best vineyards centred around Piccadilly Valley and Lenswood in protected sites facing north or north-east. Soils are derived from schistic and sedimentary rock; typically well-drained sandy loams over red clay interspersed with schistic gravels. A premium wine-growing region, Adelaide Hills is best known for crisp, lively Sauvignon Blanc and elegant cool climates styles of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Shiraz.
