2013 Mystery 93 Point Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

This wine is in such great condition, its scary. Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc at its peak, to be consumed now, this ludicrously priced Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from two premium vineyards in the Nairne and Lobethal sub-districts of the Adelaide Hills. An exceptional 2013 vintage has allowed this wine to have a much longer drinking window than many would expect. The stock standard varietal flavours are all there- with some development adding a touch of class to this wine.

Bright straw in the glass, on the nose, it has a wonderful fragrant and lifted aromatics of freshly picked passionfruit, with an herbaceous edge and some hints of lemon and granny smith apple. Fresh, crisp and clean palate with citrus fruits. All nicely integrated with riper flavours filling out the middle palate.

Winemaker's Notes

Sauvignon Blanc grapes for this wine come from two premium vineyards in the Nairne and Lobethal sub-districts of the Adelaide Hills. The exceptional growing conditions of the 2013 vintage resulted in an extended ripening period and exceedingly concentrated fruit flavours. Once harvested, the two components were inoculated with pure yeast culture in stainless steel in order to retain the purity of flavour provided by the Sauvignon Blanc fruit. The juice was then fermented to dry before blending, fining, filtration and bottling.

Bright pale straw with hints of lime. Fragrant and lifted aromatics of freshly picked passionfruit, with an herbaceous edge and some hints of lemon and granny smith apple. Fresh, crisp and clean palate with citrus fruits. All nicely integrated with riper flavours filling out the middle palate, before a persistent, vibrant and racy finish. Food Match: Thai soft shell crab.

2013 Mystery 93 Point Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2013 Vintage) says
Pale straw-green; Adelaide Hills sauvignon blanc at its best, full-flavoured, but not sweet or phenolic; lychee, kiwifruit and gooseberry, plus a twist of Meyer lemon, produce a sauvignon blanc to please most palates.
