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.
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.
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
