Sauvignon Blanc from one of the spiritual homes of the variety in Australia: the Adelaide Hills. This is a textural wine with grapefruit and tropical fruit flavours combined to good effect. The palate is still sorting itself out but it’s all rolling in the right direction; come the summer of 2016/2017 it will be singing.2016 - 2017
Light straw-green; has a range of flavours from citrus to tropical that are totally satisfying. Ready right now.2013Wine Companion Dec/Jan

Clean, fresh, lively and crisp; as good as they come in a low-profile varietal fruit mode, its quality coming from its balance, length and finesse.Australian Wine Companion 2012 2011
This is a richer, riper style of sauvignon and smells of rich tropical fruits, mango, guava and passionfruit, with added richness working away. The palate has a round texture and delivers a 'tropical fruits in syrup' kind of experience, with flavours lingering long through the finish and acidity discreetly placed.The Penguin Good Australian Wine Guide 2010 2009
An elegant and quite juicy wine, with pleasing tropical fruit flavours on the palate, the finish lengthened and enlivened further by lemony acidity.Australian Wine Companion 2011 2010
Has abundant tropical fruit on bouquet and palate alike, almost to a fault if that were possible; just a touch of thickness on the mid-palate.Australian Wine Companion 2010 2009
A gooseberry, asparagus and tropical mix in a light frame; finishes with lemony, minerally acidity; clean, dry and crisp.Australian Wine Companion 2009 2008
Spotlessly clean; the touch of oak, as usual, restrains the exuberance of the aroma, but is handsomely repaid on the extremely fine and long palate; great structure and texture.Australian Wine Companion 2007 2006
Delicate gooseberry flavours and structure; extremely subtle use of oak; clever making. Slight cork taint ignored.Australian Wine Companion 2005 2004
Light to medium yellow-green; clean mineral and citrus aromas have a slightly tropical edge, the rich, very flavoursome palate in mouthfilling, drink asap style.Australian Wine Companion 2004 2003
The Adelaide Hills is renowned for Australia’s finest Sauvignon Blanc. Harvesting in the cool of night ensures we extract vibrant examples of cooler climate fruit.
The grapes were crushed and pressed with free run and pressings fractions kept separate. Each parcel of grapes was fermented separately in stainless steel tanks to maintain the fresh lively characters and varietal definition. Only our most pristine free run parcels have been used to make this limited wine.
The wine has an aromatic and herbaceous nose with passionfruit and kiwi and is pale straw green in colour. The fresh and zesty palate has varietal notes of passionfruit and a touch of melon and finishes with a subtle citrus note. Enjoy chilled and whilst young.
