2016 Penny's Hill The Agreement Sauvignon Blanc

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

When you taste a distinctive, classic Sauvignon Blanc you really take notice. We certainly did after trying this Penny's Hill The Agreement Sauvignon Blanc, which instantly stuck out from the rest with its charismatic herbs and tropical fruit character. Sourced from the Battunga Vineyard in Kuitpo, at the southern edge of the Adelaide Hills, this is A grade Sauv Blanc - and gee it shows.

Winemaker's Notes

Agreed by the Anthony’s (Toop and Parkinson) ‘The Agreement’ owes its origins to the Toop family’s impressive cool-climate Battunga vineyard. In line with the Penny’s Hill mantra of white wines from outstanding Adelaide Hills ‘estates of mates’ this single vineyard Sauvignon Blanc shows purity, elegance, a fine balance and a clean natural acidity. All in perfect agreement!

Colour: Clear pale straw

Bouquet: A vibrant Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc bouquet of kaffir lime, lemon zest and grapefruit with a flinty edge

Palate: Delivering plenty of fruit weight and crisp minerality, this classy, fresh, dry wine shows purity, elegance, a fine balance and mouthwatering acidity

Alc/vol: 12.5%

2016 Penny's Hill The Agreement Sauvignon Blanc

Expert Reviews

Campbell Mattinson (2016 Vintage) says
Charged with fruit intensity. Passionfruit, pulp and juice and pips. A rusty steeliness to the finish. Almost a spiciness. But it’s the burst of passionfruit/tropical fruit flavour that really carries the day.

James Halliday (2015 Vintage) says
Another Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc from '15 to show well above average intensity and a high level of natural acidity, but has admirable balance courtesy of a seamless mix of fresh citrus and tropical fruits. A worthy successor to the high quality '14.

Pure-fruited and lively. Blessedly aromatic. Herbs, spices, tropical fruits, red apples. It gets the juices flowing. It does the job. It’s good.
