Hardys Oomoo Sauvignon Blanc
Cracka Value Rating
The Hardy’s Oomoo wines are an iconic range from South Australia that draw on vineyards in the Adelaide Hills district to make this wine. This bracingly fresh Sauvignon Blanc sums up why this variety is still so popular for white wine drinkers with its vital nose of passionfruit and gooseberry as well as a vibrant lime inflection. It’s fragrant with gooseberry and grassy notes and relies on texture and a defined acid backbone before a long, refreshing finish. It work with spicy Asian dishes as well as fresh salads.
Appearance: Pale straw in colour with green hues.
Nose: Aromas of passionfruit and gooseberry are complemented with hints of fresh lime juice.
Palate: Juicy and vibrant with intense full sweetness of gooseberries and grassy characters. A full and soft palate supports the strong backbone of racy acidity and refreshing minerality leading to an impressive finish.
Food: A great match to grilled monkfish.

Hardys Oomoo Sauvignon Blanc
Pale straw-green; the pungent bouquet is, to say the least, attention-getting, and the lime zest, gooseberry and steely acidity of the palate don't back away. For those who actually like sauvignon blanc; topped its class (with a silver medal) at the National Wine Show '11.To 2013Australian Wine Companion 2013
Fresh, tight and forward, with a mainstream, grassy and moderately intense aroma of lychees, passionfruit and tropical fruits. Forward, juicy and marginally sweet, it's forward and vibrant, finishing with a pleasing cut of racy acidity.2011-2012The Australian Wine Annual 2013
A typically well-made wine, using specific yeast but no other embellishments; the bouquet and palate range between citrus and ripe kiwi fruit flavours, the finish drawn out by good acidity.To NowAustralian Wine Companion 2013

Cool herbs and grassy nose here; on the palate there's a decent melon fruit flavour and good reach of tropical fruit. This has a nice balance and a smooth texture; pretty tidy value for money.The Penguin Good Australian Wine Guide 2010 2009
Smoky/sweaty bouquet; quite fresh with a dry but generous palate and long, lingering fruit flavours. "Surprisingly good," thought one judge.Winestate magazine 2010
Oomoo' has become a regional label for Constellation and has earned a formidable reputation in quite a short space of time for good quality delivered at a fair price. This is an Adelaide Hills sauvignon and is clean, fresh and lively with a passionfruit edge and some cool tropical flavours before a zingy finishQuaff 2010 2009
