Bellarmine Wines Pemberton Sauvignon Blanc

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

There’s no doubting the appeal of Sauvignon or Savvy as it has become and while we are used to seeing it from the Margaret River, this one from Pemberton is worth the fuss. Just what you’ve come to expect from the variety, lots of vital gooseberry and passionfruit aromas that makes your palate start salivating. Pair it with an Asian dish like Pad Thai or fresh seafood and see how the complimentary flavours of citrus and tropical fruit marry harmoniously. No wonder Sauvignon Blanc is still the most popular white variety when it’s east to drink as this.

Winemaker's Notes

Appearance: Very pale straw.  

Nose: Aromatic gooseberry, citrus, grassy with some passionfruit notes. 

Palate: A palate with complexity of flavours ranging from citrus to more tropical fruit supported by minerality and a slightly creamy clean finish. A dry elegant aromatic white wine.

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2012 Vintage) says
Pale quartz; a typically elegant Sauvignon Blanc with grass, kiwifruit, guava and citrus seamlessly fused, the acidity bright and balanced.

James Halliday (2011 Vintage) says
Like all the Bellarmine wines, this has been made with infinite attention to detail. Pale quartz. It has a lovely array of herbs, wild flowers, spice and mineral on the bouquet, the palate with the sort of grip that takes you to the Loire Valley. Should be on top form for the next 18 months.

"Would be easy to drink multiple glasses," suggested one judge of this delicate, vibrant, grassy/tropical wine.

James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says
Opens surreptitiously on the bouquet and fore-palate, then jumps out at you on the back-palate and finish, with a blast of herb, grass, asparagus and citrus.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Tropical fruit and green nettle bouquet; ripe, generous, focused and lively on the finish; varietal with true focus.

James Halliday (2007 Vintage) says
Has lovely citrus, grass and mineral aromas and flavours giving bite and character; intensity without heaviness.
Australian Wine Companion 2009 2008
Ray Jordan (2007 Vintage) says
Has a strong regional, smoky herbaceousness on the nose. The palate is crisp and finely-textured, with a light herbal gooseberry flavour. Nice palate is sustained.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Spotlessly clean; fresh, very crisp and lively; an interesting conjunction of passionfruit, guava and herb flavours, especially at this low alcohol
Australian Wine Companion 2008 2007
James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
Water white colour; delicate, fresh, crisp light-bodied wine; well-made, though lacks varietal intensity.
Australian Wine Companion 2007 2006
James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
Faintly smoky/sweaty reduction to the aromas; cleans up on the gooseberry, capsicum and citrus palate; good length.
